MVMNT Race Series #1 Results

by Race Results Weekly
July 20, 2020

Despite sunny and hot conditions, the first three women in the 10,000m –Keira D’Amato, Olivia Pratt and Abbey Cooper– all set personal bests at this COVID-compliant, micro-meet.  D’Amato, 35, had the best performance of the meet with her USA-leading mark of 32:33.44.  “This ‘return to running’ has been such a fun ride for me,” she posted on her Instagram account.  “Thank you to everyone for the kind messages of encouragement and support.”

NOTE II: Each athlete had to test negative for COVID-19 twice in the week leading up to the race.  The track was closed to all but credentialed persons.  For the 10,000m races there was one misting station, and sealed 8-ounce water bottles were available from one drink table (which was re-loaded by gloved/masked volunteers).  The few spectators in the stands were required to wear masks and remain socially-distanced
