Forgeus goes for Olympic trials 

THIS WILL BE A BIG WEEKEND COMING UP FOR LAUREN FORGUES. THE UMAINE SOPHOMORE MIGHT BE A LONG SHOT FOR THE US OLYMPIC TEAM THIS SUMMER,BUT THE RACEWALKER WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO
QUALIFY FOR THE OLYMPIC TRIALS. SHE’LL HAVE THAT CHANCE IN OREGON THIS WEEKEND. SHE’LL RACE IN THE 20 KILOMETER EVENT….. THAT’S ABOUT 12 1/2 MILES. SHE THINKS SHE’LL BE FAST ENOUGH TO REACH THE QUALIFYING STANDARD which is an hour and 48 minutes.. A GOOD RACE COULD ALSO EARN HER A SPOT ON THIS SUMMERS U-S WORLD CUP TEAM.
