Breaking Away: #TeamNB Women Dominate Final Track & Field Rankings
The highly prestigious Track & Field News has been known to be the final say in end of year rankings. Earlier this week we were happy to see the US Women's rankings crowded with New Balance athletes at the top of their events. To be exact, three women from our team are standing proud at number one in four different events.
Congrats to Brenda Martinez (800m), Jenny Simpson (1500m and 5000m), and Emma Coburn (Steeple) who own the 2013 number one ranking in their four events (in order below).
Being proud of our entire team, we would also like to highlight Nicole Bush (3rd Steeple), Stephanie Garcia (9th Steeple), Kim Conley (4th 5000m) for racing their way into the top 10 in their respective events (in order below).
