Wiggy set for USATF XC Champs


POOL REPORT FROM J. ALEXANDER ABOARD CONTINENTAL FLIGHT SOMEWHERE OVER U.S.A. -

Joe Wiegner (right) is carrying the GRC flag at the USATF Cross Country Championships on Saturday in San Diego, CA. This meet serves as the trials for the US team for the World Championships so the field will be loaded. While Wiggy will likely not be in contention for a spot on the US team (not this year anyway) he looks ready for a breakout performance. "Joe is fit and ready to roll" said his coach, Jerry Alexander. "Joe hoped to sharpen up with an indoor 5k two weeks ago but had to sit out with a minor illness, but he's bounced back and is rested and should be well positioned to compete. This is the first race in what is going to be a huge 2011 for Joe".

The 12k race begins at 2pm pacific time on Saturday.

MORE: race reports should trickle in HERE sometime after 5pm local time...

UPDATE: 2:09pm PDT, Wiggy giving course a test drive, sees shalane and tegs, and they nod their approval of his GRC jacket.
