ABOUT Charlene Lipsey

Charlene has shown from her collegiate performances that she is primed and ready for the professional ranks.

She is one of the most decorated middle distance runners in the history of the Lady Tiger programme. During her four years at Baton Rouge Charlene has accumulated a magnificent array of honours including three-time SEC champion titles and five time All American in the 800m.

In fact her SEC performances have been utterly dominant: back-to-back infoor titles in ’12 and ’13, swept SEC titles in the 800m throughout 2012 and was also crowned SEC Outdoor Champion.

An impressive run as a Junior saw her to an NCAA Outdoor silver medal and she also secured bronze in the NCAA Indoor Championship in 2013.

Charlene’s college athletics career concluded with a No.2 ranking in school history indoors when, with impeccable timing, she ran a career best 2:02.47 at her final indoor race at the 2013 NCAA Indoor event. She also holds the all-time No.3 ranking for outdoor perromances with a PB of 2:01.40.

And Charlene’s 1,500m and Mile performances have been pretty impressive too. Her 1500m best of 4:18.16 places her 2nd in the LSU all-time ranks and a 4:44.20 mile puts her 6th.

2013 has seen Charlene conclude her wonderfully successful Lady Tigers career in fine style and moving into the professional ranks is a natural progression for this tremendous talent.
