Jordan Hasay -Olympic Trialist

Great story forming. She is a 16 year old, who just finished her sophomore year in high school, and come Sunday she will be running in the finals in the 1,500 meters.

Hasay wasn’t even planning on competing in the Trials, but was allowed to at the last minute due to a few runners that had unexpectedly withdrawn. Hasay was not expected to even come close to getting out of the first round, but here she is sailing into the finals.

This was all meant to be a tune up for her before she competes in the Junior Nationals, but hell, she might find herself out in Beijing. Stranger things have happened.

It was cool too because the crowd all were chanting, “Come to  Oregon”.  Very cool moment.
