Olympic marathoner Magdalena Lewy Boulet ties up with Saucony

May '08
Two weeks before the 2008 U.S. Olympic Women's Marathon Trials, Lewy Boulet, ran a personal best on the track, racing to a third-place finish in the 10,000 meters at Stanford, clocking 32:33, an Olympic Trials "A" standard qualifying time.

Lewy Boulet will compete in the 10,000 meter final at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Eugene, Oregon in July, prior to running the Olympic Marathon in Beijing on August 17th.

"Everyone at Saucony is very excited that Magdalena is joining our family of athletes, which includes Olympic hopefuls Molly Huddle (10,000 meters); Alicia Shay (10,000 meters); and Gabe Jennings (1,500 meters), among others," said Woodworth. "Saucony will be supporting these courageous runners every step of the way, in Eugene and Beijing, as they strive to achieve their very best," he added.

Lewy Boulet was touted as a strong contender to make the 2004 U.S. Olympic marathon team. She missed out, but ran a solid race in the 2004 Trials in St. Louis and was the second alternate with her fifth place finish.

Prior to the 2008 Olympic Marathon Trials, she had not run a marathon since she qualified at the ING New York City Marathon two years ago in a time of 2 hours, 42 minutes, 38 seconds.

Lewy Boulet became a U.S. citizen on the morning of September 11, 2001. She earned her bachelor's degree in human biodynamics from U.C. Berkley in 1997 and a master's degree in exercise physiology from Cal State Hayward.

She livesin Oakland, California, with her husband Richie, one of the United States' best milers in the 1990s, and their three-year-old son Owen.

In 2003, Lewy Boulet returned to her alma mater as a coach for the Golden Bear cross country program, where she has been ever since.

Lewy Boulet is coached by Jack Daniels, Ph.D., a world-renowned authority on distance running and currently the Head Distance Coach at the Center for High Altitude Training at Northern Arizona University.
