Muna Lee Sprints On Oly Team!

Wow! Who would have thought that 10.93 would not get you in the top three slots in the women's 100-meter final?

That is the time put up by Marshevet Hooker, who was slow out of the blocks. The Olympic roster is also without Allyson Felix (10.96), who finished fifth in the smoking hot race.

Fight, determination, grit are all appropriate words to describe Muna Lee's career in the sport. She overturned some of the sport's biggest names. The Kansas City, Missouri native is known as an accomplished sprinter in track circles. Lee, who attended LSU, competed in the 200-meters in the 2004 Olympic Games. We predicted that the 26-year-old sprinter would be a force to reckon with at the trials, and she definitely lived up to those expectations.

Muna Lee, Torri Edwards, and Lauryn Williams are an impressive group of runners to represent the U.S. at the Olympic Games in Beijing.
