PlymouthÂ residents will long-remember Morgan Ucenyâ€™s anguish at the 2012 London Olympics.
The PlymouthÂ High School graduateÂ tripped and fell to the track just as she was moving into position to win a Gold Medal in the womenâ€™s 1500-meter run.
But a track athleteâ€™s season is more than one race, and while the Olympics didnâ€™t go the way she hoped, Uceny was a key player in the other places she ran during 2012.
So much so that Track & Field News magazine has ranked Uceny No. 8 in the world in its year-end wrap-up.
Uceny is ranked No. 2 among womenâ€™s 1500-meter runners in the United States.
