Alaka Toes The Line In Sweden

| No Comments

Freshman sprint standout James Alaka headed across the North Sea from his native London to Gothenburg, Sweden this past weekend to compete in the Folksam Grand Prix, which attracted a number of the world's top track athletes.

Alaka, an NCAA Championship participant in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes in his first year at UW, ran the 200 in Sweden and took third in the top heat. Alaka crossed the line in 21.18 seconds, with American Rae Edwards winning in 21.05.

Also competing in Gothenburg was former Husky Ingvill Makestad, who set a new PR and a Norwegian national record in the 800-meters, as she ran 2:00.82.
