Dempsey Big Enough For Two Team USA Members
Two of Washington's most prominent track and field alumni have been working out in the Dempsey this week, both working their way into shape for the current outdoor season that is just starting to pick up steam.
Ryan Brown, 2009 World Championships participant, is no stranger to the Dempsey as he trains full time with Coach Metcalf and serves as a volunteer assistant for the Huskies. Tuesday saw Brown doing some work down at the south end of the Dempsey, while down at the northeast corner, former World Champion pole vaulter Brad Walker was working through a series of fitness drills.
Walker, the American record-holder and 2008 Olympian, is targeting the USA Championships (June 23-26 in Des Moines, Iowa) for his season-debut, after an injury cut his 2009 season short. Brown is planning a competitive run at the Occidental Invitational in Los Angeles next Saturday, May 8, before moving on to USA's and some meets in Europe later in the summer.
The two men wracked up four NCAA titles and 13 All-America honors between them in their time at Washington. Just another day in the Dempsey!
