Next she ran for the University of Tennessee, on their NCAA Women's Indoor Track and Field Championship 4x800 meter relay team. She was part of another Tennessee 4x800 team that set the NCAA record. Individually she won the 1986 NCAA Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championship at 1500 meters.[9][10]


She won the 1991 and 1999 editions of the Fifth Avenue Mile in New York City. Later on, she continued to run into the Masters division and currently holds the world indoor record for the mile in both the W35 and W40 division.[11] She also holds the W40 American outdoor records in the 800 metres and 1 mile.[12]

She helped as an assistant coach at George Mason University,[13] George Mason High School[14] and at Battlefield High School.[15]

The 1988 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships took place between June 16-19 at Pepin-Rood Stadium on the campus of University of Tampa in Tampa, Florida. The meet was organized by The Athletics Congress. This was the last time the National Championships were held separately from the Olympic Trials in the same year. With the Trials held 4 weeks later, many athletes made decisions to forego the National Championships in order to be ready for the trials. Starting in 1992, the two meets were combined.

1993 World Championships in Athletics – Women's 1500 metres

These are the official results of the Women's 1.500 metres event at the 1993 IAAF World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany. There were a total number of 40 participating athletes, with three qualifying heats and the final held on Sunday 1993-08-22.

The three Chinese athletes in this race showed their inexperience at this level. Yan Wei looked at the starter while all the other athletes were looking forward at their first step. At the gun, all three were squeezed to the back having to halt their steps, with Liu Dong being left at the back of the field. Liu sped around the outside of the field in the first 125 metres to reach the front, but Olympic champion Hassiba Boulmerka had no interest in letting her take the pace, instead aggressively holding Liu to the outside. Boxed at the back of the pack for the first 400 meters, Lü Yi then ran around the far outside of the pack to join Liu's shoulder on the outside. Just before 800 meters, Yan worked her way through traffic to get behind Lü, temporarily boxing in Sonia O'Sullivan. Crossing the start line for the second time, Liu accelerated into the lead with Lü in tow. Boulmerka continued to fight, holding off Lü with the field stringing out behind them. Over the next lap, it became a four-woman breakaway as O'Sullivan was the only other able to hold onto the pace. Liu continued to increase the gap to Boulmerka, opening up 10 metres down the backstretch as Lü sprinted past Boulmerka into second. O'Sullivan followed Lü then sprinted past her on the final curve. Liu was gone, pulling away to a 15-metre win. O'Sullivan maintained her position as Lü faded. Boulmerka was unable to make any headway against O'Sullivan and had to settle for bronze.

DCRRC Track Championships

The DCRRC Track Championships is an annual all-comers track meet in the United States that has been held since the early 1990s. It is hosted by the DC Road Runners Club. Although it has offered multiple distances, it historically emphasizes the mile race. From 2012 the meet has offered prize money in an effort to attract more runners.Over the years the meet has been held at Wakefield High School, Washington-Lee High School, and T.C. Williams High School. While the distances offered in the championships has changed slightly over time, the meet consistently hosts a mile race on the track. Due to this consistent tradition, the meet was recognized and promoted by the RRCA's Bring Back The Mile tour. All runners regardless of their experience are allowed to race and are subsequently divided into heats depending on their seeded times.

List of United States records in masters athletics

These are the current records in the various age groups of masters athletics for United States competitors. Starting at age 35, each age group starts on the athlete's birthday in years that are evenly divisible by 5 and extends until the next such occurrence. For record purposes, older athletes are not included in younger age groups, except in the case of relay team members. A relay team's age group is determined by the age of the youngest member. There are two categories of relay records, one for composite teams made up of four American runners usually National teams at major championships, and a Club record for members of the same club, from the same Association.

Some masters events (hurdles, throwing implements) have modified specifications. The combined events use an age-graded result applied against the standard scoring table.

Based on IAAF rule 260.18a, since 2000, indoor marks superior to the outdoor record are eligible for record purposes. They are noted with an "i"
