“I’m very pleased with what I did,” Lindberg told the Atlanta Track Club. “I sort of heard people yelling, but I was concentrating so hard to keep going those last 100 meters.”
Lindberg is a veteran when it comes to breaking track records. Just last year, she broke the 800 meters world and national record for her age group with a time of 6:57.56.
