Gail Devers Wins 60m And 60m Hurdles At Last Weekend's Tyson Foods Invitational in Fayetteville, AR
By: UCLA Athletics

Feb. 18, 2004

Bruin great Gail Devers last weekend (Feb. 14) continued with her successful 2004 indoor season by winning both the 60m and 60m hurdles at the Tyson Foods Invitational in Fayetteville, AR.

An Olympic gold medalist, Devers of Atlanta, GA, dedicated both her races to her high school math teacher who was recently injured in a freak car accident. In her first race, Devers got off to a quick start to win the Visa women's 60m, tying a world-leading best of 7.10 and setting a new Randal Tyson Track Center record. She later ran the third fastest time in the world this year with her 60m hurdles mark of 7.87.

"Today was a tough workout," Devers said. "I needed the work. I dedicated both my races to my high school math teacher. She was injured in a freak accident. She taught that first impressions are important and was meticulous in what we had to turn in.

"I needed to work on my speed for the hurdles," she said. "I didn't feel so good for the start and third step. I tried to settle myself down on the hurdles. I needed a double workout and I'm thankful for that. I've been finding passion for running because I really don't like to run. I like to teach through my track. Running for other people is a great feeling. My focus is on (Indoor) Nationals and the Olympics aren't my focus right now."
