The runner-up at the 2008 Trials in Boston, Lewy-Boulet will be aiming to make her second Olympic team on January 14. The 38-year-old ran a personal best of 2:26:22 at Rotterdam in 2010, making her the third-fastest qualifier in the field. This past summer, she clocked her fastest 5,000 and 10,000-meter times ever on the ultra-competitive European track circuit, proof that there’s still plenty of life left in her aging legs.
