Two Gophers returned from last week’s NCAA Track and Field Championships as All-Americans – and not one of them was named Luca Wieland.

The sophomore, who took home the Big Ten and national title in the heptathlon and earned the Big Ten crown in the decathlon earlier this year, withdrew from the outdoor championships after aggravating a leg injury during warm-ups.

For the Gophers that did compete, juniors Gian Ferretti and Goaner Deng both placed well enough in the hammer throw and 800-meter run respectively to earn All-American status.

Corrections: 
Correction: Former Daily reporter Grant Donald was recently terminated for admitting to fabricating quotes in articles. Minnesota track and field athlete Goaner Deng said he was not interviewed for this story. The suspected quotes have been removed and the Daily’s investigation into Grant’s body of work is ongoing. 7/24/2015: In addition, Minnesota head coach Steve Plasencia said he does not remember being interviewed for this story.
Blurb: 
Luca Wieland withdrew from the championships after a leg injury.
