Amy Hastings Media Round Table Conversation

For a few years after her career at Arizona State, 10-time All-American Amy Hastings waffled. “It seemed like no matter what I did, I couldn’t get things right,” said Hastings at a roundtable media session on Thursday.

Deena Kastor Press Conference

Deena Kastor wasn’t sure she would ever come back. She wasn’t even sure she would want to.
