Plymouth's Morgan Uceny realized a dream Sunday, not only making Team USA but dominating the 1500 meter run.
Uceny made her move and never looked back. She even beat the defending World Champion with a time of 4:04.59.
Uceny is the defending National Champ and last year she was ranked number one in the world.
Now, she's not only on Team USA but the favorite to win Gold in the London games.
She says it's that work ethic her family instilled in her back home in Plymouth that helped her get to where she is today.
Uceny is a bit of a track legend at her alma-mater. She holds 5 school records, including long jump, which is a bit odd for a distance runner.
Uceny won the state championship for the Pilgrims in 2001.
Her coaches say there was just something special about her.
Former coach Roy Benge says you could never find the bottom of her gas tank. Former Plymouth head track coach Angie Stevens says they knew she was talented but who could ever know that she would become an Olympian.
