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, June 11, it was announced Monday. The award, which is the final one for the 2016-17 season, is voted on by a state-wide media panel.

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

The native of Kopavogur, Iceland, earned first-team All-American honors after placing sixth in the finals of the men’s javelin with a mark of 73.28 meters (240-5) last week at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Finals at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

By finishing sixth, Gudmundsson scored three points for the men’s team, helping the Aggies finish tied for 65th overall. Prior to Gudmundsson, it had been 15 years since a USU track & field student-athlete scored team points at the NCAA Outdoor Finals.

Gudmundsson advanced to his first-ever Outdoor Finals by placing first in the javelin with a mark of 76.18m (249-11) at the NCAA West Preliminary Championships on May 25 in Austin, Texas. Last Wednesday, he became the first Aggie javelin thrower to earn All-American honors in 28 years (John Kelly in 1989).

Nominees from other sports for USU Student-Athlete of the Week included:
WOMEN’S TRACK & FIELD – Sophomore Brenn Flint (Syracuse, Utah) earned honorable mention All-American honors after placing 23rd in the finals of the women’s shot put with a mark of 14.60 meters (47-10.75) last week at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Finals at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.
