Colleen Quigley has established herself as a world class steeplechase and Mile athlete. In February 2018, she won the famed indoor Wanamaker Mile, edging teammate Kate Grace, 4:30.05 to 4:30.08. After some injury downtime, the 2016 Rio Olympian returned to racing action in the summer and recorded a 3000m steeplechase PR of 9:10.27 (#3 U.S. all-time). She closed her season with a runner-up finish at the 5th Avenue Mile, clocking a personal best of 4:19.2.

While attending Florida State, Quigley, a 9-time NCAA All-American, won the 2015 NCAA 3000m steeplechase title.

She is also a volunteer assistant coach for the Portland State cross country and track & field programs.

FUN FACT: Colleen has modeled since age 13, but now running is her #1 priority.
