Make us proud, Lindsey!
As a long-ago competitor and one who enjoys following track and field, I've
wondered where this woman came from and what her story was ever since she burst
on the scene as national champion in the steeple, since it was bound to be
inspirational. What a great story of overcoming self-doubt and excelling in a
tough, tough sport. (Maybe it's the pregnancy hormones but I was even a little
teary-eyed by the end of the article.) Great job getting this far, Lindsey, and
we'll be cheering for you in August!
Lindsey will make us proud. She is a woman of great grace and will work toward
her goals. Utah will be represented well.
I got a little emotional when reading this article. It's neat to hear her story
and focus to push through tough times and come out on top. I will be following
her the whole way through. Good Luck!
As a Weber State alum, I read about your accomplishemnts with so much pride.
Good luck, no matter what happens, we are all proud of you!By the
way, I hear gold medals are nice :)
A great article on an even nicer young woman! I am glad to see that she never
gave up on her dreams. As an ex-coach of track and field she wasn't on the
"radar" of the bigger schools but got hooked up with a great distance coach in
Paul Pilkington and the rest...is just great stuff. Interesting side note: both
Paul and Eddie Eyestone will have athletes they have coached in the Olympics.
Way to give back guys! That is what it is all about.
Congrats Lindsey! You are living out my dream. I enjoyed reading your story.
Making the Olympic team is an amazing accomplishment. Enjoy Beijing, you've
Lindsey, it was a thrilling experience watching your race at the Olympis Trials.
May you experience even greater success in Beijing!
