1 min read

MONTGOMERY –– Montgomery’s professional runner Elle Purrier St. Pierre clinched a remarkable victory at the World Athletics Indoor Championship in Glasgow, Scotland, winning the women’s 3,000-meter race. Her stellar performance of 8 minutes and 20.87 seconds not only secured her the title but also established new North American and championship records.

This achievement comes on the heels of another record-breaking feat, where Purrier St. Pierre set a new American record for the indoor mile. Remarkably, this win occurred just under a year after the birth of her son, Ivan, highlighting her extraordinary comeback.

The 29-year-old athlete’s success in Glasgow marks a significant improvement from her performance two years ago in Belgrade, Serbia, where she earned a silver medal in the same event.

Raised on a dairy farm, Purrier St. Pierre has a history of representing the U.S. on the global stage, including her participation in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics where she was the top American finisher in the 1,500-meter final.
