Women's 800 Meters, June 27
Athing Mu, 19, after setting a Trials Record of 1:56:07. Mu was born in the U.S. to Sudanese parents and began to train with the Trenton Track Club and Coach Al Jennings at age 6. She's an Honors student and plays tenor saxophone.
Big-time "Wa"! Athing with family and other supporters after
the triumphant race. We may say, too, that the "Soul" of athletes
is often evident in Track & Field.
