Kick of the Week - Jan 31st
This short clip doesn't really do this kick justice. Tennessee's Jackie Areson was sitting at distance 5th in the women's 3k at the Penn State National Meet and with 700 meters to go started hammering down. At the bell she caught the leaders and went on to not only kick home for the win, but also an automatic and NCAA #2 mark of 9:07.27!
Check the click below the video to see the last 700 meters of the race and Areson long distance kick to victory.
