Emily Mackay, a BU and UE graduate, clocked in the fastest 800-meter dash by a US women's racer this year, according to BUBearcats.com.

Mackay finished the women's Elite-800 run in 1:57.87, good enough for first place at the Adrian Martinez Classic. This is the first time in Mackay's career she has broken the two-minute mark in the event.

Mackay is set to compete in the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials in two weeks at the University of Oregon from June 21 to June 30.

Mackay finished up her BU career in 2022, racing for five seasons as a Bearcat and set the Section IV record for the 1500 and 3k while a Union-Endicott Tiger. Mackay runs professionally for New Balance Boston. The Adrian Martinez Classic is held at Emerson Field in Boston.
