Lennie Waite
Last week, at the European Team Championships, Lennie Waite, representing Great Britain, finished 2nd in the 3,000 meter steeplechase in a nice time of 9:43.33.

Unfortunately, earlier today, she was a disappointing 4th at the British Team Championships (to pick the team for the World Championships). Her time was 10:13.81. I don't yet know the reason for the performance.

On Tuesday, July 4, at the USATF 10K Championships in Atlanta, Becky Wade finished 6th in a time of 33:44.20. This was a road race, part of the annual Peachtree 10K. The field was world class, so an 6th place finish is outstanding.

Also, Becky recently became engaged to former Owl distance runner Will Firth.

The USATF Twitter shows Becky at 6th - even better!

I corrected my original post (it was a typo, twice). I'm trying to get more information on Lauren LaRocco, who doesn't appear in the original results.

FWIW, she retweeted the USATF results webpage that has her 6th: https://twitter.com/lauren_larocco?lang=en

RE: Lennie Waite
I haven't talked with Becky as of yet, but this is what I've pieced together:

1. I saw Becky's finish line photo, and there is no runner immediately in front of her, but right behind her is a runner wearing Bib W151;
2. I went to the USATF website to get the list of the INVITED runners for the women's race, and the name of Lauren LaRocco does not appear - so she was in the elite field, but not "invited." She was assigned Bib W151;
3. LaRocco runs for the University of Portland, and is legit - she's run 32:47.30 for 10K on the track.

So, the results should be that Becky was 6th.

Here is the website .

The website I'm seeing now has Becky 6th, with LaRocco 1 second behind in 7th.

Congrats.

Today, Lennie finished 2nd in the 3,000 meter steeplechase in a meet in Letterkenny, Ireland. Her time was about 9:43.9 - I estimated that from the YouTube video. I'll link to that video when I get a chance, unless someone beats me to it.
