Colleen Quigley continued her excellent summer with a personal best of 9:20.00 to place ninth at the Paris Diamond League steeplechase on Saturday.
The race was the third since July in which Colleen set a PR. First, she ran 9:21.29 while finishing third at the U.S. Olympic Trials on July 7. Then she ran 9:2.10 to place eighth in the Olympic final on August 15. And now, 12 days later, 9:20.00.
The race was won by Olympic champion Ruth Jebet in a world record 8:52.78. With American Stephanie Garcia finishing eighth in 9:19.48, Colleen remains the fifth-fastest steepler in U.S. history.
Colleen has one more shot this year to join the sub-9:20 when she runs the Zurich Diamond League on September 1.
