Lincoln North Star's Mohammed Hamden knows what it takes to win a state championship. Hamden took home the gold finishing first in the 1600 meter run. He's ready to do what it takes to get a repeat championship at the state meet in 2012.

"The first thing I thought after I won was now I got to come back next year and do it. I don't want to lose this and I want to get another gold medal," Hamden said.

Hamden has prepared himself by hitting the weight room, clocking in at four minutes, 16 seconds in the 1600 meter run earlier this spring.

"I feel like I've gotten a lot stronger. I always thought it was a speed thing where I needed to be faster. But I just need to keep a pace for a longer period of time," said Hamden.

Hamden has a state championship, not the best time in the state, however. Fremont's Danny Aldaba ran the race in a time of four minutes, 12 seconds.

"At first I was surprised that he ran that. But I want to keep my title. Come state, I'm gonna go out there and run my heart out and leave it on the track," Hamden commented.
