KENWORTHY ON ANNICA: "There's something to be said about Annica's success in race walking. That experience of performing and winning big time races will serve her well as she turns her attention more directly to cross country. While her running career is still in its youth I expect she will call upon her race walking experiences and be making leaps and bounds on the XC course in no time."
