Sally wins silverIn her first Olympic competition, Sally Kipyego, B.S.N., (SON '09) placed second in the women's 10,000m with a time of 30:26.37
Earlier this summer, Kipyego announced via Facebook that she had earned a spot on the Kenyan team and would be competing in the women's 10,000m and 5,000m races.
Four years ago, Kipyego told PULSE that she planned to compete professionally as a runner before beginning a career in nursing or returning to further her nursing education. She was a member of the Texas Tech University track team while she attended nursing school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
Read more about her journey to the United States and into nursing in the Summer 2008 issue of PULSE.
