Podominick Earns Trip to World Championships
Liz Podominick was a Big Ten champion for Minnesota.

June 24, 2013

Former Gopher track and field standout Liz Podominick earned a place on Team USA for the World Championships. She qualified at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, on Sunday.

Podominick recorded a third-place discus throw of 199-1 (60.69m). She will compete at the IAAF World Championships, which run August 10-18 in Moscow, Russia. Podominick placed fifth in discus at the 2012 Olympic Trials.

Jamie Cheever had the second-best finish of the former Gophers at the national meet. She finished fourth in the 3,000m steeplechase with a time of 9:53.01. With a time of 9:29.13 earlier in the season, Cheever is the only US woman with an A standard. She would have a place on Team USA if one of the weekend's top three finishers were unable to go to Moscow.

Also competing in Des Moines were Heather (Dorniden) Kampf, who came in sixth in the 800m (2:00.68) and  Gabriele Anderson, who finished 11th in the 1,500m (4:32.93).
