UCLA Alum John Godina Named USATF Athlete Of The Week
By: UCLA Athletics

Sept. 19, 2001

INDIANAPOLIS - UCLA alum John Godina, who won the men's shot put in the final meet of the elite 2001 season at Yokohama, Japan, has been named USA Track & Field's Athlete of the Week.

Godina's victory, with a mark of 20.92 meters/68 feet, 7.75 inches, was a perfect ending to a nearly perfect season. In 2001, Godina won the World Indoor and Outdoor titles to establish himself as the most dominant thrower in the world this year. He also won the U.S. Outdoor title and lost only once outdoors, placing second at the Goodwill Games.

Other notable performances this week included Bruin alum Amy Acuff, who jumped 1.85m/6-0.75 in the high jump at Yokohama meet.

USATF's Athlete of the Week program is designed to recognize outstanding performers at all levels of the sport. USATF names a new honoree each week and features the athlete on the USATF Web site. Selections are based on top performances and results from the previous week.

Other Bruin alums who have been named Athletes of the Week for the 2001 season include Meb Keflezighi (May 8, set American 10,000m record) and Willie Banks (Juluy 3, set World Masters record in the triple jump).
