Molly Huddle’s 14:44.76 clocking for 5000 meters in Brussels 2010 made her the fastest American woman of all time. Her American Record is one of many accolades she’s earned, as she has also been a seven time US road race champion, including 3 consecutive championships at the Tufts 10K for women, in Boston. In 2011 she captured her first track title, winning the US 5,000 meter championships in an impressive 15:01. In 2012 Molly realized her Olympic dreams representing the US and qualifying for the final of the 5000 meters in London. Her enormous professional success has followed an impressive collegiate career at Notre Dame, where Molly earned All-American status 10 times in cross country or track.
Molly currently trains in Providence Rhode Island under the tutelage of legendary Providence coach Ray Treacy, alongside New Zealand legend Kim Smith, and US Olympian Amy Hastings. In her down time Molly is an avid Oprah fan, and rarely missed an episode prior the show going off the air. Her only superstition before a race is to paint her fingernails- who knew fingernails could make you so fast!
