The injury to his Achilles was not nearly as bad an anybody thought an this past weekend in his first indoor track race of his life, not of the season EVER), the Oklahoma State freshman won the Razorback Invitational mile in a new World Junior Indoor record of 3:56.50. Fernandez’s time breaks the mark set by former World Record holder and Olympic medalist Jim Ryan.

For his record performance, German Fernandez, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of January 25th.

American Track & Field - Athletes Only magazine will recognize an outstanding performance each week by American high school and college athletes during the 2008 - 2009 school year
