EUGENE, Ore. Nike Flyknit Cheap China . --- As Molly Huddle made her way around the curve of Hayward Fields copper-colored track, the fans rose to their feet as the last leg of the womens 5,000 meters of the U.S. Track and Field trials turned into a sprint. Huddle, with a stride and demeanor that is both bird-like and strong, led the competition and pushed her way across the finish line first. And in doing so, Huddle, 31, became the first woman to win the 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters in a single U.S. Olympic trials.If you had told me that [Id win both events] back in 2008, I never would have believed it, Huddle said after her race, remarkably not out of breath while several of her peers wandered the grounds around the finish line dizzy, leaning over with their hands on their thighs, at war with lactic acid and digestive uncertainty. Its pretty crazy to look back on it.It was a breakout performance, but nothing new to track fans who have been watching closely. Huddle has won bundles of national titles in cross country, road and track races, making her greatest challenge replicating that success on the international stage. Many at Hayward Field wondered: Can Americas great hope in womens distance running bring home a rare Olympic medal?Since it was added as an Olympic event for women in 1996, no American woman has made the podium in the 5,000 meters, as nearly half of the medals in the event have gone to Ethiopians. In that same time frame in the 10,000, only one American woman won a medal -- Shalane Flanagan -- who received a bronze at the 2008 Beijing Games.Huddle, though, has decided not to run the 5,000 in Rio and will compete only in the 10,000, even though she calls the shorter distance her favorite event. (Huddle became the American record holder in the 5,000, running 14:42.64 in Monaco two years ago.) It came down to scheduling and preserving her body.In addition to her ambitious double win in Eugene, Huddle has announced that after the Olympics, she will run the New York City Marathon, one of the most anticipated marathon debuts in recent memory. The training regimen for an Olympic 10,000 better fits the lead-up to a marathon, but Huddle knows even that is cutting it close, with only a couple of days to rest after Rio before she will start preparing for New York, which is scheduled for Nov. 6.I try to take it one event at a time, Huddle said of her regular scheduling conundrums.Huddle has wasted no time using her podium to champion for a fascinating, off-beat cause: the adoption of a female runner emoji. (All the sports characters look like dudes! she told Runners World magazine.) Huddle said that she submitted her proposal to Unicode (the company being emojis) and said that she heard via two tweets from its CEO that theyre working on a way to modify emoji genders for a few characters, including the runner, but she hasnt heard about a timeline or anything specific yet. In June, Huddle won a partial victory when Facebook announced it would launch a female runner option. Huddle supports a designer who sells a T-shirt and a coffee mug with her proposed design (the latter of which is paired comically with a coffee and poop emoji, echoing an agony known by many distance runners), the proceeds of which go to support youth running efforts in Rhode Island, where she trains.Emoji activism aside, some track fans also hope that Huddle can bring a fresh face to a sport that has been enshrouded in scandal. While the Russians are banned from track and field at the Olympics, in February came reports that nine Ethiopian runners were under investigation for alleged doping. Antidoping officials in the United Kingdom are investigating reports that British athletes had used EPO while training in Kenya and there continues to be criticism that testing efforts in the East African distance running powerhouses have been lackluster to nonexistent.Looking at the results of what I assume are the Ethiopian trials, its frustrating because theres not a lot of talk about that country, Huddle said. But we have to get as fit as possible and just trust that rules will be followed in August.Huddles start with the sport was an unusual one. Her high school in Elmira, N.Y., didnt have a cross country team, so she ran as a one-girl team her senior year with her father as her coach. At the University of Notre Dame, Huddle was a 10-time All-American and, upon graduating in 2006, began running as a professional. She remained competitive but got lost in the pack as she regularly landed in the top 10 but seldom on the podium. At the 2008 U.S. Olympic trials, she finished ninth in the 10,000 meters and 10th in the 5,000 meters as other big names like Flanagan and Kara Goucher beat her to the Olympic berths.She won a silver medal in the 5,000 at the 2010 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships and that same year set an American record in the event as her performances started to break out in road races. Two years later, she finished second in the 5,000 at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials and in 11th at the Games in London.But it wasnt until 2013 that her breakthrough really began. At the world championships, Huddle finished sixth, the highest American female finish in that event ever. She finished fourth in 10,000 meters at the 2015 worlds, heartbreakingly close to the podium. American Emily Infeld beat Huddle for the bronze after Huddle appeared to celebrate a stride too soon.With the success has come sponsorship, chiefly from Saucony. In 2015, Huddle won the most prize money of any American, earning $151,700 -- a small kitty compared to her counterparts in other individual sports like golf or tennis, but impressive in the lower-paying world of professional track and field.Often the narrative of Olympians is one of extraordinary power and exceptionalism, that their bodies somehow can do something the rest of us can only dream of, that they were born to be on that track. But its a false one, and its not how Huddles brain is wrapping around her greatest forthcoming opponents from East Africa. Her finish in Eugene of 31 minutes, 41.62 seconds is strong, but she knows she still has work to do to shave seconds off her time if shes to contend. In March this year, she beat Kenyan star Joyce Chepkirui at the New York City Half Marathon, when she ran 1:07:41, setting an American record for a women-only race and beating out Chepkirui by a mere 0.08 seconds.It would be tempting to see Huddles performance at the trials, the New York City Half, or upcoming run at Rio as coming out of nowhere, breakthroughs in the ever-competitive sport. Shes trying to hedge expectations with low-key commentary, but given her recent performances, its not off-base to think she could shatter them as if no one had been paying attention.But the reality is: Huddle has been there all along.Having seen some of the Ethiopian and Kenyan results, Huddle said that to medal in Rio, she would need to be in shape to hit a time that would be an American record.Im going to get as fit as I can for that race, she said. But I could have a great day and finish eighth. You just never know. Nike Flykit Clearance .

It does pertain to you because you are your brothers keeper. ... Its your responsibility to make sure that not only are you behaving well, but that your teammates are behaving well, and we can take care of each other.Tracy said she talked to good men and called them out, asking them what can they do and how can we change this together.
