By Noel Guiden, Morton Games

Nicole Schappert (USA) of the NJ / NY track club returns to Santry for the Women’s International Mile on Friday evening, July 11. 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.

The Women’s Mile will once again be a world class affair, as previously confirmed, the field will include U.S. 5000m record holder Molly Huddle and U.S. based Scot Lennie Waite who will use the Mile as a final tune up before she heads to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games where she will compete in the 3000 Steeplechase. 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.
