BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Bronxville native Mary Cain takes her shot at qualifying for the 2016 Olympics Sunday after narrowly making it into the 1,500-meter final on Friday at the U.S. Track and Field Trials in Eugene, Ore., according to a report in lohud.com.
Local fans can catch the Bronxville High School graduate running at 8 p.m. Sunday on NBC. She'll have to go up against a tough field of competition, including Shannon Rowbury, who holds the U.S. record, lohud.com reports.
Cain, 20, who turned pro at 17, holds a record for the fastest time ever run by an American high school student in the 1,500-meter when she ran it in 4:04.62 at the 2013 IAAF World Championships, lohud.com says. A middle-distance runner, Cain competed for 10 seasons at Bronxville High School , winning state and national recognition.
