Anderson Places Fourth in 400m at Pan Am Games
By: UCLA Athletics

July 26, 1999

Winnipeg, Canada - Andrea Anderson, who recently completed her collegiate eligibility at UCLA, placed fourth in the 400m at the Pan American Games with a time of 52.43.

"I just tried to execute my zones," Anderson said. "My coach wanted to try a new strategy and wanted to use this meet as a practice for that. I ran the race in thirds, getting out and maintaining through 150, then running the backstretch and feeling the competition, seeing where everyone is going - then finishing with a strong push. I thought I responded well to that."

Mexico's Ana Guevara won the gold with a time of 50.91, followed by Michelle Collins of the USA (51.21). Anderson was just less than a second out of a bronze medal, with Jamaica's Claudine Williams edging her out with a time of 51.58.

"This was my first international experience in an open race, and I was really happy to have the opportunity to be here," Anderson said. "It taught me a lot: how to prepare, how to make a final, and eventually how to start winning."
