Grace on Fire: 5 Questions with Kate Grace

February 12, 2013

By Mario Fraioli, Competitor Group

Kate Grace is off to a hot start on the indoor track circuit this winter. The 24-year-old, who is sponsored by Oiselle and trains with Frank Gagliano’s New Jersey-New York Track Club, turned more than a few heads with an 8:55.06, second-place finish in the 3,000m at the University Of Washington Invitational at the end of January, outkicking Abby D’Agostino and Jordan Hasay over the final 100 meters to finish less than a second behind winner Brie Felnagle.

Grace, a four-time All-American at Yale, competed in both the 800 and the 1500 meters at last summer’s Olympic Trials. She’ll turn her attention next to the Wanamaker Mile this Saturday at the Millrose Games in New York City, where she’ll line up amongst a loaded field that includes D’Agostino and Hasay, as well as Olympian Emma Coburn, high school phenom Mary Cain and others.
