Good to see her getting some pub. She was only 5th at the Olympics but 2 cheats cost her not only a bronze medal but hundreds of thousands in lifetime earnings. Maybe now she'll make more long term as a result.

And it looks like Alysia is finally getting the PR she deserves. We've always been amazed that she didn't get more publicity or endorsements after running USAs last year 8 months pregnant and then coming back a year later and winning this year. But she's got NYPost.com cover right now and also spoke to Chris Chavez of SI today and has a more running centric article here:
As Chris note, "MontaÃ±o could receive a silver medal from the 2010 world indoor championships and bronze medals from the 2011 world championships, 2012 Olympics and 2013 world championships."
So she could go from being America's near miss woman to a 3 time medallist. Montano was 4th in 2011, 5th in 2012, and 4th in 2013.
Good for Alysia to be getting the pub she deserves.
