Others may have been talking about a new national record when Chanelle Price (Easton High School / PA) stepped to the line in the New Balance Games 500 meters race, but she had a few very strong competitors to beat first.

Grabbing the led early, Price used the strength that took her to the finals of the USATF 800 meter final last June to slowly pull away from the field on her way to smashing the 1:11.44 record with a 1:10.30 clocking! Prices time not only took down the high school national record, but moved her to the #10 fastest in U.S. history.

For her record performance, Chanelle Price, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of January 21.

American Track & Field - Athletes Only magazine will recognize an outstanding performance each week by American high school and college athletes during the 2007 - 2008 school year
