FernandezUSXC08champsJN.jpg By John Nepolitan June 3, 2008 / Running 4:00.29 for 1600 meters to take the California Federation State Championship almost surely would have been enough for German Fernandez (Riverside HS, CA) to be named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week, but when he came back two hours later and ran 8:34.23 to take the 3200 meter championship there was no reason to look further for a winner of this weekly award. In what many experts are calling the greatest single day distance double by a high school athlete, the Oklahoma State bound runner has stamped himself the man to beat at the Nike Outdoor Championship later this month when he does to the line in the 2 mile.

For his outstanding performances, German Fernandez, has been named Athletes Only Athlete of the Week for the week of June 2nd.

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
