Miranda Melville Punches Ticket to Rome

(Sunday, April 3rd, 2016 Earth City, Missouri) Miranda Melville will represent the USA in Rome, Italy, on May 7 & 8 in the IAAF World Team Championships of Race Walking. Melville finished 2nd on Sunday at the USA Team Trials with a 1:37:21. This is the 9th USA international team for the 2007 Rush-Henrietta graduate.

Melville, now sponsored by Skechers Performance & the NYAC, is ranked #28 in the World after her 7th place finish with a PR of 1:31:42 just 2 weeks ago in Nomi Japan.

Melville said, “We are racing quite a bit this year and this race was more about place than time for me. With several big races very close together this season including the Olympic trials on June 30th, I needed to race smart”.

Miranda Melville is one of 6 local athletes to recently receive a training and travel grant from the Greater Rochester Amateur Athletic Federation, GRAAFUSA.org.
