Henry County’s Jim McKee, who is the USATF President for Kentucky, was elected to the National Associations Committee at the annual USATF national meeting recently held in Indianapolis.
McKee will work on communications. Also at the meeting, the 2009 Jesse Owens awards were given to Sanya Richards and Tyson Gay. Richards was the world champion in both the 400-meter and the 1,600-meter relay, while Gay broke the American record in the 100-meter dash twice and he had four of the top-five fastest times in the world. McKee is shown with Gay, above, during the USATF meeting.
