Canadian 1500-meter specialist, Malindi Elmore, just came off of a 8:57- 3,000 meter performance at last weekend’s University of Washington Invitational. The 3-time Canadian National Champion and Olympian over 1500-meters looks to be in good form heading into this Olympic year. Elmore holds personal bests of 4:02:64 and 15:12:12 in the 1500m and 5,000m events respectively. Elmore is best known for her incredible range on the track, and for being a leading advocate for Canadian track and field athletes.
