Thweatt: Don’t rerun U.S. Olympic Trials for marathon

Durango High alumna may switch gears to 10K in second effort for Tokyo
Laura Thweatt, a 2007 Durango High School graduate, came up two spots short of qualifying for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo in the women’s marathon. Though the Games are now postponed until 2021, she does not want USA Track and Field to rerun the trials.
Durango’s Laura Thweatt, center, has recovered well from the U.S. Olympic Trials in the women’s marathon and is ready to change gears whenever races resume after the coronavirus.
The Olympic rings floating on a barge are seen behind cherry blossoms Wednesday in the Odaiba section of Tokyo. Not even the Summer Olympics could withstand the force of the coronavirus. After weeks of hedging, the IOC took the unprecedented step of postponing the world’s biggest sporting event, a global extravaganza that’s been cemented into the calendar for more than a century.
