Remember When - Hazel Clark

IslandStats.com
Episode four of Remember When sees former American Track and Field star Hazel Clark as the guest.

Earl Basden, along with Clark who is the Director of Sports Business Development for the Bermuda Tourism Authority, looks back at the start of her career and life growing up under the watchful eyes of all.

Hazel Clark is an American middle-distance runner who specialized in the 800 meters middle distance race. She was a member of the U.S. Olympic team in 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Clarke captured six national titles and two USA Olympic Trials events during her career.

Clark is the daughter of inner-city educator Joe Louis Clark, who inspired the film Lean on Me, and the sister-in-law of fellow Olympian Jearl Miles-Clark, Joetta Clark Diggs is her older sister.

Clark, her sister, and her sister-in-law made history when they swept the 2000 Olympic trials 800 meters.

Clark finished seventh at the 2000 Olympic Games. At the 2001 World Championships, she did not progress past the first round due to injury.

At the 2004 Olympics, Clark was eliminated from her first-round heat in the 800 meters after a freak accident where she was burned severely. She then had two good seasons with an eighth place at the 2005 World Championships, seventh place at the 2005 and 2006 World Athletics Final, and a sixth place at the 2006 World Cup.

In 2008, she won her second U.S. Olympic Trials 800 meters final held in Eugene, Oregon, and competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Her personal best time is 1:57.99 minutes, achieved in July 2005 at the Bislett Games in Oslo.
