Sowinski hoping for gold in US track & field championships

By  | 

The top runners in the country will be in Des Moines this week for the US track and field championships and that includes former Hawkeye Erik Sowinski.

Sowinski is chasing that elusive gold medal. He has been a model of consistency, qualifying for 12 straight finals in the 800 meters at national championships, but has never finished on the top of the podium.
