Flotrack is reporting that senior Shippensburg athlete, Neely Spence is forgoing her college eligibility to pursue her olympic dreams -5k or 10k.
I find it surprising and a little sad. I doubt Ms. Spence has any chance of making a 2012 olympic team and this may be due to dad's unrealized olympic goals.
I think Neely may have star in her eyes. She is an excellent runner and seems like a grounded young lady. But olympic aspirations seems a tad premature.
