Oregon runners lead USA to team silver medal at 100 km World Cup

Kami Semick (Bend, OR), finished second Saturday at the IAU 100 km World Cup in Tarquinial, Italy, leading an outstanding American team performance. Semick's time of 7:33:58 was the second-fastest time ever for a U.S. woman to lead Team USA to the team silver medal.  For her performance Kami was named USATF's "Athlete of the Week".  Kami also won the Portland Marathon in early October of this year.

Meghan Arbogast (Corvallis, OR) finished sixth in 7:52:21, while Devon Crosby-Helms (San Francisco, CA), rounded out the team scoring, finishing tenth in 8:01:52.
