nyrelays08price.jpg It is right around this time in the spring when many seniors are looking forward to the prom, the end of school and a new start in college. Chanelle Price (Easton HS / PA) is not like most high school runners. Price is looking toward the US Olympic Trials in late June and a chance to make the team going to China. Running in the Invitational 800 at the New York Relays, Price opened her spring campaign with a swift 2:03.98. Her time is not only the fastest high school time in the USA this year, but is also the #1 Junior time in the world to date for 2008.

Blasting from start Price was pretty much in a time trial passing the 400 meter point in 56.3 before slowing, but this was what she was looking for in her build up to Eugene and the Olympic Trials.

For outstanding performance, Chanelle Price, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of April 21st.

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 year
