Richards-Ross happy with time
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Three months into her comeback from toe surgery, four-time Olympic champion Sanya Richards-Ross is already making significant strides.
She’s also poised to add to her collection of national titles in the women’s 400 meters.
Richards-Ross ran a relaxed but encouraging 52.39 seconds in her heat Thursday to advance to the semifinals at the U.S. Outdoor Championships. It was a full second slower than Richard-Ross’ best time this year and well off her American record set in 2006.
• SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Thirty-four weeks pregnant, Alysia Montano ran the 800 meters in the U.S. Track and Field Championships.
The five-time national champion finished in 2 minutes, 32.13 seconds in the qualifying rounds, only seven weeks before she’s scheduled to give birth to her first child.
