Recent performances suggest Olympic success for Seidel

On 28 February Molly Seidel celebrated her surprise Olympic Marathon qualification, won 365 days earlier, by running a solo 1:08:29 half marathon in the Publix Atlanta Marathon Week.

Five weeks earlier she had won in Las Vegas with a 1:09:20 timing. Her run in Atlanta was a new personal best and places her third on the 2021 Half Marathon listings and 8th on the all-time best list of US runners.

Natosha Rogers (USA) shadowed Seidel for the first 7km but then dropped back to give Seidel a runaway win.on the somewhat hilly car racetrack on the outskirts of Atlanta which featured many turns. Seidel complained about the high humidity, but also saw the positive side: the prospect of similar conditions at the Olympic Marathon in Sapporo in August 2021.
