Joanna Hayes, Kara Goucher added to Millrose Games
Top teams set for College 4x800-meter relay
by: Global Athletics Press release

    NEW YORK CITY (Jan. 28, 2008) – Olympic gold medalist Joanna Hayes and World Championship bronze medalist Kara Goucher have been added to the lineup for Friday’s 101st Millrose Games, organizers announced today. 

    In addition, a strong College Men’s 4x800-meter relay will feature teams from Columbia, Seton Hall, Cornell, Villanova, Georgetown, Arkansas and George Mason. 

    Hayes, 31, set an Olympic record in winning the 2004 Olympic gold medal in the 100-meter hurdles. She won here in 2006. Among Hayes’s rivals will be Canada’s Perdita Felicien, the 2003 World Champion in the 100-meter hurdles and 2004 World Indoor Champion. 

    Goucher, whose 2007 World Championship bronze was the first World medal ever won by an American woman at 10,000 meters, will face, among others, Russia’s Liliya Shobukhova in the Mile. Shobukhova is the 2006 World Indoor Championship silver medalist at 3000 meters and a former World Record-holder at that distance. 

    Headlining the Mel Sheppard 600 will be Americans Bershawn Jackson, 2005 World Champion in the 400-meter hurdles, and Khadevis Robinson, four-time US Champion at 800 meters. 

    The 101st Millrose Games, the third stop in USA Track & Field’s Visa Championship Series, is set for Friday night, Feb. 1, at Madison Square Garden. Tickets are now available at Ticketmaster (call 212-307-7171, visit www.Ticketmaster.com or at Ticketmaster outlets); or at the Madison Square Garden box office.
