FLASH: Tollefson Gets Trials Qualifier

Team USA Minnesota's Carrie Tollefson ran the Olympic Trials qualifying mark she sought at last night's American Miler's Club meet in Indianapolis.

The 2004 Olympian ran 4:16.56 for 1500m to earn a "B" qualifier for the event.

With last night's mark, Tollefson will still need to wait out the entry process to see if she is accepted into the meet. A field of 30 athletes is intended for the women's 1500m at the Olympic Trials in Eugene in less than two weeks.

Entry lists for the Trials are HERE.

Results from the meet, where Jenelle Deatherage ran 4:07.87 to finish third at 1500m, can be found HERE.

The window for qualifying for the Trials closes today.
