Track and field needs a feel good story, a figure to elevate the sport beyond the current scandals and bad news. Delilah DiCrescenzo, the young Olympic hopeful who inspired the Plain White T's Grammy award-winning "Hey There Delilah," may very well be that person. She is furthering her bid to make the Olympic team.
Over the weekend, Delilah took third in the steeplechase in 9:51.49 at the Mt. Sac Relays. She hit the Olympic Trials A standard and Olympic Games B Standard with her last performance. If she continues to lower her time, the dream of making the Olympic team may been well within her reach.
