Saint Lucian middle distance runner Claudina Udoka Constantine has been named a National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) Division 1 All-American after finishing eighth in the 800m run at National Championships over the weekend.

Constantine, competing as a sophomore for Butler College, overcame a groin injury that has been affecting her ability to train to the fullest of her potential to run 2:17.53 and cop eighth place in the final, being held in New Mexico.

The youngster from Soufriere also has a 4.0 GPA, and was recently inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honour Society.

She is considering multiple offers from four-year schools, as she works towards her dream of becoming a medical doctor.
