Nicole was the winner of the inaugural Women’s International Mile which was held in the 2012 Morton Games when she shattered the previous stadium record by a massive 14 seconds to record her Mile PR of 4:30.65 and in the process set a new Morton stadium record (that record was subsequently lowered to 4:30.44 by Brie Felnagle (USA) last year).
Nicole went to college at Villanova and was a three time All-American. The HOKA ONE ONE-sponsored athlete was also a finalist at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials 1500m and set her 1500 PR that year, clocking 4:06.87.

Also making her return to Santry for the Mile is Pilar McShine (TRI) who ran her Mile PR of 4:36.79 in last year's Meet.
