asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
In her final competition before relocating to Greenville, SC and joining the ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE post-collegiate, Olympic-development program, Cristina McKnight won the Cincinnati Heart 15K race in the Ohio city. She ran 56:40 over the hilly route on a windy morning. It was a personal best for McKnight, who only began competitive running a couple of years ago.
GTC-ELITE was established in 2012. The program produced four qualifiers for the 2016 USA Olympic Trials Marathon in Los Angeles and currently one "time-qualifier" for the 2020 Olympic marathon.
