Schenectady's Ahmed a national champion

Schenectady High School distance standout Maazin Ahmed never got a chance to run for a New York title at the end of the spring track and field season. Sickness affected his training.

A national title will have to do.

Before a huge crowd at Eastern Michigan University's Rynearson Stadium Tuesday, Ahmed earned a national championship in the 1,500 meters.

"I had enough to kick at the end, so I kicked," Ahmed said of his victory in the age 17-18 division at the AAU Junior Olympic Games. "I feel it definitely made up for states, being one place at the qualifying. Winning a national title is a big deal."
