Colleen Quigley is a 23 year old 5’9″ steeplechaser for the United States. While still in high school she signed a modeling contract with the famed Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. She was very successful and planned on pursuing modeling as a post high school career. That all changed when she was offered a full ride to attend Florida State University on a track scholarship where she eventually won an NCAA title in the steeplechase. Runner’s World did a story on the end of her modeling career.
Colleen will begin her Rio Games competition when the steeplechase qualifying begins this morning, August 11th, at 9:05 EDT.
