Jorge Torres and Shalane Flanagan took the honors at the United States 8k Championships in Central Park yesterday (USATF release; NY Times story). Torres won the men's race in 22:41.2; Flanagan, the women's race in 25:40. Each took home $10,000 for the effort. Pre-race favorite, Alan Webb, had stomach problems leading up to the race, ascribed to some bad cream cheese at a news conference for the event. He was able to start the race, and lead through most of it, but faltered with about 2k to go and had to walk a few steps. He eventually came in 16th, 50 second back (23:32).
