    Olympian Will Lead Expansion of Training Programs at All Levels - ATLANTA, November 24, 2014– Following through on its commitment to build new centralized training programs to meet the needs of its 21,000 beginner, committed and elite members, Atlanta Track Club announced today that it has hired Amy Begley, a 2008 US Olympian, as the first full-time head coach in the Club’s 50-year history.

    Among Atlanta Track Club’s stated goals is to develop at least one male and one female Olympian by 2020. 

    Begley, a 15-time All-American and two-time NCAA national champion while competing for the University of Arkansas, made the 2008 Olympic team at 10,000 meters with a dramatic last lap, racing the clock to beat the required “A” time standard for inclusion. In 2009, she finished sixth at the IAAF World Championships at the same distance in a personal best 31:13.78., making her the eighth-fastest American woman in history. She finished her professional career with six national titles, four of them—at 3000m indoors and 10,000 meters on the track and at 5K and 15K on the roads—in 2009.
