Team USA marathon runner on her Rio redemption: 'I hope we inspire a lot of runners out there'
All summer we've been following the journey of Olympic marathoner, Desiree Linden. On Sunday, she took on 26.2 miles and impressively placed seventh.
She hails from Southern California and ran for Team USA at the women's marathon event in London at the 2012 games and in Rio Sunday. Linden placed seventh, crossing the finish line in an impressive 2:26:08.
It was a pretty close race: the first, second and third place runners finished within thirty seconds of each other. Linden finished about two minutes behind the first place finisher. Her teammates Amy Cragg and Shalane Flanagan placed sixth and ninth, making Team USA's effort the strongest showing from any country at the event.
