NZ distance runner Kim Smith came second in the Continental Fifth Avenue Mile, held in New York on 30 September. The 24-year-old was a four-time National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) champion while at Providence College in Rhode Island, New York, where she still lives. After health problems kept her from competing in this year’s Commonwealth Games, she has high hopes for the 2007 athletics World Champs and 2008 Olympics.
