Makenna Myler, who competed for BYU from 2011-14, placed 14th in a field of 44 runners in the 10,000-meter run at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials Saturday in Eugene, Oregon.

Myler, who gave birth just seven months ago, finished with a time of 32:44.72.

The race was won by Emily Sisson in a meet-record time of 31:03.82. Karissa Schweizer and Alicia Monson completed the top three finishers. That trio will represent the U.S. in the Tokyo Summer Games next month.

Myler, who lives in Highland, was the only Utahn to compete in Saturday’s competition. The Olympic Trials will conclude Sunday. BYU’s Conner Mantz and Casey Clinger will compete in the final of the 5,000-meter run Sunday morning.
