Carlson Sixth, MacGregor Eleventh at Olympic Trials

Team USA Minnesota and former Gopher Andrew Carlson made an impressive debut in the marathon taking sixth at the US Olympic Trials on Saturday with a time of 2:11:24. Team USA Minnesota teammate Jason Lehmkuhle was 18th in 2:14:35. Mike Reneau finished 20th in 2:14:37. Former Team USA Minnesota runner Patrick Smyth was 22nd in 2:15:00. Chris Erichsen placed 40th in 2:17:52. Former Stillwater High standout Luke Watson was 65th in 2:21:58. Chris Lundstrom came in 66th in 2:22:03. Justin Gruenwald was 74th in 2:24:16, and Chad Johnson placed 83rd in 2:36:48.

They all performed much better than USATF's results page, which didn't function during the race and still does not have a list of the female finishers, though we do know that Duluth's Kara Goucher made the team by finishing in third place with a time of 2:26:06. Team USA Minnesota's Katie MacGregor finished 11th in 2:34:01. We'll post the rest of the women's times when they are available.

Here are the rest of the Minnesota women finishers: 22. Michelle Frey 2:37:06; 47. Jennifer Houck 2:40:51; 55. Leah Thorvilson 2:42:09; 63. Jenna Boren 2:43:04; 80. Katherine Koski 2:45:27.

Finish times for both races are HERE.

I think that's Malcolm Richards from South and St. Olaf in 51st place.
