February 3, 2024

O’Keeffe turned in a stunning and blistering performance at the U.S. Olympic marathon trials in Orlando, crossing the finish line in 2:22:10 to not only win her marathon debut but break the event record. She finished nearly 32 seconds ahead of runner-up Emily Sisson, effectively pulverizing a deep and talented field of American distance runners and booking her ticket to the 2024 Paris Olympics this summer.

She also became the first woman to win the U.S. Olympic marathon trials in her first race at the distance. USA Today
