Track Trials Update — women’s 5k

Magdelena Lewy-Boulet, the Oakland runner who won last year’s Wharf to Wharf race, advanced out of the semifinals of the women’s 5,000 meters at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials on Monday. The top six in each of two heats advanced. The top three in the final will make the the Olympic team.
Lewy-Boulet previously reached the Olympics in the marathon in 2008 but did not finish the race due to injury.

Soquel’s Maggie Vessey, who is attempting to reach her first Olympics, will race in the 800 final in a few minutes.
