Track Beauty of the Week: Heather Dorniden-Kampf
January 8, 2012Posted by on
Heather Dorniden-Kampf is this week’s track beauty!
Chances are, you’ve probably seen the video where Dorniden-Kampf, then a collegiate athlete, fell in the middle of a 600m indoor race and got up to snatch victory at the end. It was an awe-inspiring race that reminded me of the great Eric Liddell and the movie “Chariots of Fire.”
Kampf has made the big leap from college-level track & field to professional competition. In 2011, the University of Minnesota alumna participated in several top notch meets such as the Pan Am Championships and the Diamond League. The 24-year old has personal bests of 2:00.41 and 4:12.09 in the 800m and 1500m runs. These are highly-competitive times that place her amongst the top performers of 2011.
There’s more to Kampf than being an internet sensation. With the determination she displayed at that infamous video, the talented American middle distance runner is poised for bigger things.
