Video interviews with some of the top performers in the women's steeplechase below.

Winner Emma Coburn got emotional with her Colorado Buffalo teammate Shalaya Kipp after both made the team. After pausing to shed a few tears Coburn said, "It's our dreams, it's why we get up every day and run. It's why we cry and work our asses in practice. It's our dream and it's kind of come true...It's all hitting my right now that we're both Olympians."

Delilah DiCrescenzo of Hey Delilah fame got emotional as well for another reason, missing the Olympic team. She said, "Not everyone is meant to be an Olympian. I can still have success in other things, in other races. And being an Olympian is not going to define how successful my career was. At least that's what I'm telling myself now."
