    One of my teammates . . .

    Post by runner_dude on Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:40 am

    is an Olympian! I knew Adrienne Power used to run for Dalhousie, but I didn't realize she still trained under the same head coach. She's at practice just about every day, and I almost got ran over by her in the first practice before I really new not to stand in the middle of the track. oops

    She ran the 200m in Bejing, and her PR is 22.86

    I bet she could run faster but that race was all uphill and she just ate 2 bigmacs and the wind was in her face and she just wasn't trying. Rolling Eyes

    I know someone who's now in her first year of college who went to the Trials for the 800m...sadly she got tripped up and was unable to qualify for the next round.

    Yep that's her. It was a little disappointing to hear what happened but at least she has a lot of years ahead of her.
