Finishes 10th as top American at Tokyo Olympics

“I’m a bit disappointed, given how the trials went, but timing’s everything in this sport, and I feel like it was a bit off with timing it for the Olympics,” Sisson said. “So I’m still really proud of the effort I gave, and it was an incredible group of women that made the team, and we faced incredible competition.”Runner’s World story on the race
