Delilah DiCrescenzo, the steeplechaser and muse of the Grammy Award winning song “Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White T’s, ran under the Olympic Games “A” standard for the second time this season in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the Rio IAAF Wat Meet. She also ran a personal record of 9:43.57.
Keep your eyes peeled. If DiCrescenzo continues to drop her times, she will contend for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Delilah is currently the third ranked American at this point in the season, and her time in Rio also gave her the #9 all-time spot for U.S runners.
