    SEC Athletes Earn 14 Medals At World Championships

    MOSCOW, Russia – Current and former student-athletes from Southeastern Conference institutions totaled a conference-best 14 medals, including a nation-leading four gold medals, this past week at the 2013 IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia.

    The list, compiled by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association on Monday, ordered the athletes based on each institution’s current conference alignment (not necessarily the institution’s conference affiliation at the time the student-athlete competed).

    In total, SEC institutions had 79 current and former student-athletes participate in the 2013 IAAF World Championships, 27 more than the next closest conference (Pac-12 with 52).
