Rising sophomore Eddie Owens and recent graduate Donn Cabral '12 both competed in international meets this week.

Owens ran a PR to finished 11th at the 2012 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Junior Championships in Barcelona, Spain on Sunday, July 15.

Owens ran 8:51.44 for the second time in the meet. He clocked in at 8:52.99 in the qualifiers. Click here for a link to the results

“It feels good to PR,” Owens told Tom Lewis of the USTFCCCA. “This (race) was ridiculous. I could not have foreseen the competition that was going to be here. It took 8:36 to score points (finish in the top eight), that’s unheard of. This is far and away the most stacked final in meet history. I ran about as well I could for right now. These guys went out in 64, and I went out in 67 — that’s about Olympic ‘A’ standard pace — I’m not running that. For me to go out and hold my composure, I really left it out on the track.”

In preparation for the 2012 London Olympics, Cabral won his first race as a professional. Cabral ran the 3,000 meters at the XI Meeting Internazionale Citta'di Velletri in Rome, Italy. The race featured 18 competitors from four countries. Cabral won the race in 8:12.95. Click here for a link to the results
