The COROS Distance Athletes Of The Week (5/13-5/20)

As the state championships keep rolling in, this hasn't stopped athletes from putting out historical marks. 

Runners from Utah and Iowa stood out this week. 

Check out the top athletes below who solidified themselves as the COROS Distance Athletes Of The Week. 

Daniel Simmons, American Fork (UT)

Class of 2024


The Utah standout put together a new personal best at his state championships.

He claimed double gold in the 1,600m and 3,200m, was top eight in the 800m and anchored his 4x800m to a state title in 7:35.22.

In the 3,200m, he dropped an 8:36.79, which was just off his nation-leading performance of 8:34.96 from earlier this season. His 1,600m win was eye-catching as the BYU commit set a lifetime best and improved his U.S. No. 2 mark with a 4:01.27 at 4,500 feet of elevation.

This was his second consecutive 4:01 performance this outdoor season.

Dorenkamp put together the nation's fastest times in the 1,500m and 3K en route to claiming two Iowa state titles over the weekend.

In just her second season in track, Dorenkamp successfully defended her state titles while also shattering her personal bests. 

The University of Alabama signee remained undefeated this spring and was able to drop times of 4:25.32 and a 9:30.64, respectively.
