Morgan Uceny is one of the most talented American middle distance runners of the past half decade in the U.S. She has also had more bad luck than a roller derby queen. Possessing huge drive and a great finish, Morgan Uceny has had problems in her last two global matches. In 2011, she fell in the final of the 1,500 meters at the World Champs, and in 2012, she fell in the final of the 1,500 meters in the London Olympics.
Morgan Uceny has raced well over 800 meters and 1,500 meters for the past half decade. When Morgan is fit, she is a contender in any race that she commits to race. Coached by Terrance Mahon at Mammoth TC, Uceny moved with Mahon to Great Britain, and now, has moved to Boston, as Mahon takes on his next challenge: the elite development club for the Boston Athletic Association (more on that to come).
I have admired Morgan Uceny for years: she loves the sport and races all comers. As a fan and a former coach, I want to see Morgan achieve what I believe, as do many others, that she is capable of: a global medal.
Now recovered, and in fine shape, Morgan Uceny will be running the 1,000 meters at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, to be held on February 8, 2014 at the famous Reggie Lewis Center, in Roxbury, MA.
