Minneapolis/St. Paul – May 10, 2016 – Five Team USA Minnesota runners – including defending champion Heather Kampf – will compete at the USATF 1 Mile Road Championships hosted by the Medtronic TC 1 Mile in downtown Minneapolis on May 12. Kampf is a two-time Medtronic TC 1 Mile winner and a three-time USATF 1 Mile Road champion. She has a best in the road mile of 4:21.39.
ASICS is thoroughly invested in competitive running, and the CosmoRacer LD is its latest entry for the track. The upper is a closed mesh that’s supported by thin, no-sew overlays in the heel and midfoot, and thin linings shape the toe. The midsole is a molded layer of EVA that’s got a good bounce, making it effective for longer races.
Tia Brooks twice improved on her personal best to win the shot put at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Doha with 19.48m and become the first winner of a Diamond Race discipline in 2016 after she managed an upset victory on Friday (6).
Brooks got her first personal best when she reached 19.45m in the second round and extended that by three centimetres with her following effort.
(IAAF) - At the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Doha 12 months ago, the triple jump provided one of the highlights of the night.

The adidas’ new DistanceStar provides performance on a budget, and it’s surprisingly well done for the price. The upper is a breathable mesh, both light and sturdy. It offers adequate drainage for the steeplechase, with an interior that’s well finished enough to be comfortable during the longer track races.

The Hurricane has undergone more change in two generations than it has in most of the previous 16 combined. It starts with an update to the ISO fit saddle (aptly named ISO 2). Minimesh and fused overlays complete the forefoot, and an external thermoplastic heel counter secures the foot over the sole. But it’s in the midsole where the magic begins.
