Celebrated Bronxville High School senior Mary Cain finished 10th in the 1500 final, the youngest ever in her event in a World Championships.
“I’m a student here, I’m just learning from all this,” said Cain. “I’m kind of hard on myself,” she said. “I’m going to put this energy to work in a good way. I’m going to direct it, I’m going to attack it, I’m ready to go.”
Cain clocked a 4:04.62 earlier in the year to cement herself as one of the future stars on US Track.
On the night she finished in 4:07.19 to cap a fantastic year for the 17 year old middle-distance runner.
