Recap of the Tokyo Olympics, Results from the 24 ElliptiGO Athletes that Competed

24 ElliptiGO Athletes competed in the Tokyo Olympic Games! We were watching and cheering for each of them and several of them came home with some new hardware. 

Molly Seidel - USA - Marathon (1)

Molly Seidel – USA – Marathon 

Big congratulations to Molly Seidel for earning her bronze medal in the Marathon. This was only Molly’s third marathon EVER and she finished in third place at 2:27:46, just 26 seconds behind the gold medal winner. Molly is now the third woman to bring home an Olympic medal for Team USA in the Marathon, following Deena Kastor in 2004 and Joan Benoit in 1984. What’s next for Molly? While we would love to see her climb Palomar in October to defend her ElliptiGO World Championship title, she is now focused on competing at the  New York City Marathon in November.

Bashir Abdi won a bronze medal in the Men’s Marathon, finishing in 2:10:00. It was the first medal for Belgium in the Olympic marathon event since 1976. Bahir, who came to Belgium as a refugee from Somalia when he was 13-years-old, was delighted to be able to give something back to a country that he is proud to call home.

Allyson Felix earned a bronze in the 400 meters and a gold in the 4×400 Relay. This makes Felix the most decorated US Olympian in Track & Field history with 11 Olympic medals, surpassing Carl Lewis. Felix trails only Paavo Nurmi, the 1920’s distance runner from Finland who has 12 medals.
