Maribel Caicedo from the UTEP track team won several victories in the Roadrunner Invitational last weekend, and she won the title of “American Female Athlete of the Week” yesterday.
After posting a time of 13.51 seconds, Caicedo won the first 100m hurdle outdoors this season, which is also the first hurdle since 2019. Her time makes her number one in C-USA and 62 in the country.
Caicedo is originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, and is also a member of the 4x100m relay team, which won the gold medal in a game organized by UT San Antonio. The Miners scored 46.32 seconds in the second relay race of the season.
The mining team consisted of Caicedo, Oghenekaro Brume, Chinique Brown and Denae McFarlane, who defeated the UTSA Roadrunners in the fight for the gold medal.
In this competition, in addition to Caicedo, 6 other miners also won the gold medal on the second day of the competition, including Carolyne Chepkosgei in the women’s 800 meters. The game time was 2:08.95 minutes. This is his first 800m victory of the season.
