SUU's Cam Levins of Canada blows past competition to qualify for 2012 London Olympics
In addition to qualifying for the Olympics, Levins was added the Bowerman watch list Wednesday — the equivalent of the Heisman for long-distance runners.
Levins will aim for a national championship in the 5,000- and 10,000-meter races at the end of the month before training for the Olympics in London this summer.
“It’s exciting to see someone from Southern Utah — the 'Rudy' of the sports world — achieve levels that are through the roof,” Houle said. “You can only be excited about that. It just makes you appreciate not only him, but also the other athletes here that chase those kinds of dreams, to have a shot to have a personal record. To see that dream achieved is pretty exciting.”
