Lynn Jennings Biography
Lynn Jennings was born July 1, 1960 in Princeton, NJ and is a retired American athlete who competed mainly in the long distances. She is one of the best female American runners of all time, with a range from 1500 meters to the marathon. She excelled at all three of the sport's major disciplines--track, road, and cross country. She is only one of two American women ever to earn an Olympic medal at a track event longer than 800 meters, and her American road-race record for 10,000 meters (31:06) still stands--yet she almost certainly did her finest running on cross country courses.
Jennings was the bronze medalist at 10,000 meters in the 1992 Summer Olympics, held in Barcelona, Spain. Her time of 31:19.89 was a new American record, and it lasted until May 3, 2002, when it was finally broken by Deena Kastor in Palo Alto, California.
Career highlights: 1992 Olympic 10,000m bronze medalist; three-time World Cross Country champion (1990-1991-1992); three-time U.S. Olympian (1988, 1992, 1996); 1995 World Indoor 3000-meter silver medalist; 1993 World Indoor 3000-meter bronze medalist, fifth place in both the 1991 and 1993 World Championships at 10,000 meters; nine-time U.S. Outdoor champion.
