Reid goes 4:07.77 PR at San Diego Mesa College 1500
Still Seeking Olympic "A" Standard

Sheila Reid improved upon her 4-day-old 1500 meter PR yesterday in San Diego by running 4:07.77 at the USATF San Diego Summer Nights series. Reid ran 4:07.88 on June 16th. The San Diego 1500 race was put together to accommodate several runners looking for the Olympic "A" standard (4:06.00). The top three finishers achieved the standard, but Reid's PR was just short of the "A." One of those runners who achieved the "A" standard, Nicole Sifuentes, will be a major competitor of Reid's at the Canadian Olympic Trials.

A race video is available HERE. Reid has run two Olympic "B" times in the past 5 days. Here are the results.
