BOSTON - Distance and field event finals provided champions in nine events Saturday at the 2008 AT&T USA Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center, and familiar names topped many of the results tables.

The final event of the Visa Championship Series, the meet serves as the qualifying event for Team USA's roster for the 2008 IAAF World Indoor Track & Field Championships, to be held March 7-9 in Valencia, Spain. The top two finishers in each event qualify, provided they have met IAAF performance standards. The AT&T USA Indoor Championships will be televised Sunday, February 24 from 5-7 p.m., Eastern Time on ESPN2.

Christin Wurth-Thomas retained her lead top the women's Visa Championship standings, blazing the final 800m of the Hershey women's 1,500m in 2:08 to finish in 4:14.21, the fastest time by an American this year. Jenelle Deatherage, also having a career best year in 2008, was second in 4:17.38.

World Indoor champion Brad Walker proved he is back from a slight early-season injury, winning the men's pole vault with a clearance of 5.70m/18-8.25. Rory Quiller was listed at second with a jump of 5.60m/18-4.5, a height also achieved by 2004 Olympic silver medalist Toby Stevenson, Olympian Derek Miles and Jacob Pauli.
