LOGAN, Utah - Utah State redshirt freshman track & field athlete Sindri Gudmundsson was named the America First Credit Union USU Student-Athlete of the Week for the period ending on Sunday, May 28, it was announced Tuesday. The award is voted on by a state-wide media panel.

It is the second time this year and second time in Gudmundsson’s career that he has been named USU’s student-athlete of the week.

The native of Kopavogur, Iceland, placed first in the men’s javelin with a mark of 76.18 meters (249-11) last Thursday at the NCAA West Preliminary Championships at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin, Texas. With that throw, Gudmundsson punched his ticket to the NCAA Outdoor Finals, which will be held June 7-10 at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Gudmundsson, who currently ranks fifth in the nation in the javelin, has finished first in all five meets he has competed at this season. At the Mountain West Outdoor Championships, he recorded a school-record throw of 77.19m (253-3) to win the title. The mark also set both a facility record and conference record.
