Price finishes fifth in 400 meters at Canadian Trials


Menlo School grad Maddy Price, a junior at Duke, finished fifth in the finals of the women's 400 meters Saturday at the Canadian Track and Field Olympics Trials in Edmonton.

Price raced 53.20 in the finals. Carline Muir won the race in 51.79, followed by Alicia Brown in 51.84 and Kendra Clarke in 52.19.

Price will compete in the preliminaries of the 200 meters on Saturday. Her qualifying mark is 23.48 and she'll need to at least match the Olympic standard of 23.20 to earn a berth.

Kimberly Hyacinthe (22.86) and Crystal Emmanuel (22.92) are the only Canadian women who have met the requirement.

At the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Stanford grad Garrett Heath finished 13th in the finals of the men's 5,000 meters, running a 13:55.58.

Stanford's Sean McGorty was 18th, completing the race in 14:03.99. Bernard Lagat won the race in 13:35.50.
