Read more about her story
Lanni has met all of the requirements.
-She is our fastest female marathon runner in Canada.
-She broke the record that stood for over 35 years!
-We may not see another Lanni Marchant, or caliber of runner for decades to come. This is our best shot at representing Canada in the marathon.
-She has proven her level of fitness time and time again.
-She represents all female runners in Canada.
-Men have been awarded the right to run two events at the Olympics in the past. Let it be known that this has become an issue of equality. If men can do it, so can women! #runlikeagirl
-she is my sister and I know she has the heart, the strength and determination to rise above all and prove once again that SHE IS GOOD ENOUGH!
-politics and pay cheques should not govern the selection process for our Olympic team.
Do the right thing by all Canadians, and LET LANNI RUN!
