Great to see. And while it is always great when UMass has an Olympian, this one seems a bit bigger since it's an individual sport vs a team sport. Also, how she got there after, literally, being bumped out of the running makes it one hell of a story. Go U!
Stop waiting for UMass to do something big and help UMass do something big. - Shades

^^+1 Watching the video it seems like the announcers did not expect her to finish in the top three. Never underestimate a UMIE!!!

"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."

Heather did not qualify for the final. Her race was early this morning our time.

@heathair31’s Olympic run ends in the semifinals, but we couldn’t be more proud - UMass’ own out there with the best in the WORLD is and will always be awe inspiring
