Desiree Davila (marathon – USA)

2001-2005 Sun Devil Desiree Davila (marathon – USA) will be making her first appearance in the Olympics and in qualifying she became just the second Sun Devil in history to advance to the Olympics in the marathon behind only Marie Trujillo (Mexico) in the 1984 Los Angeles Games.  Davila earned the bid courtesy of her runner-up finish at the USA Olympic Marathon Trials in January.  Davila helped lead the Sun Devil cross country team to a 14th place finish at the 2003 NCAA Championships during her time at Arizona State.  She earned her first All-America honors in 2003 (10th, outdoor 5,000m run) and garnered All-America honors in cross country as well.  Davila ranks 10th on ASU's all-time outdoor 5,000m list.
