Molly Seidel races to bronze come to be 3rd American lady
Molly Seidel had imagined “winning”l in the females’ marathon Saturday an Olympic medal,
but she is also a realist. She took a look at the various other names in the field. She saw the personal
bests, much of them 5 mins faster than her very own.
” I was hoping to be top 10, really,” Seidel said.
So when she crossed the goal Saturday early morning, behind only a pair of Kenyans, Seidel had stunned
even herself. She pumped her fists and blurt a congratulatory yell. On a steamy morning in Sapporo,
Japan, she came to be an Olympic bronze champion, ending up in a time of 2:27:46.
It was simply the third marathon Seidel, 27, has ever run.
” Just attempting to stick my nose where it really did not belong and just sort of getting after it,” she claimed. “I suggest, Olympics only happens when every 4 years. You may as well take your shot.”
