Rodgers, Adcock, and Stroupe win USA Track and Field National Titles

2011 USA Track and Field Indoor National Championships Missouri Participants

Five Missouri Athletes recently competed at the 2011 USA Track and Field Indoor National Championships and three of them claimed National Titles. Mike Rodgers took the US 60 meter dash title for the third time in four years with the world’s fastest time this year of 6.48 seconds. Patrick Stroupe won his first US crown with a win in the Men’s 3,000 meter race walk in 12 minutes 31.24 seconds. Nick Adcock earned the 2007 USATF Junior National Decathlon Championship and Sunday added his first senior title by claiming the Men’s Heptathlon at the Combined Events Championship.
