Dunn won the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - 50 km Race Walk in convincing fashion, crossing the line in 4 hours 12 minutes 55 seconds, winning by a margin of nearly 2 ½ minutes.  He officially qualified for the 2008 Olympic Team with his 'B' standard performance of 4:04:10 at the May 11 IAAF World Race Walk Cup in Cheboksary, Russia. It was the fastest time by an American since 2004. Dunn had a solid year in 50 km competition in 2006, winning the U.S. title and posting the fastest time by an American that season with his 4:16:06 performance at the World Cup of Race Walking. Dunn qualified for his second Olympic team in placing third at the 2004 Olympic 50 km race walk trials. He officially became a member of the 2004 U.S. Olympic team when he bettered the Olympic “A” qualifying standard with his 3:59:12 in Tijuana, Mexico on March 23, 2004. On a trajectory upward on the American and world race walking scene, Dunn broke through in 2000 by making his first Olympic team in the 50 km. Since then he has steadily improved, winning the 2001 U.S. 50km title and being the top U.S. finisher at the 2002 World Cup in a PR of 3:56:13. He ended that season with his first-ever #1 U.S. ranking, and he repeated his #1 ranking in 2003. He got his start in race walking at age 10, when he was scheduled to run a 1,500 at an age-group track meet but decided to compete in the 1,500m race walk instead. After a last-minute lesson from his father, Dunn won the race in his first exposure to the event. He continued with the sport while also competing as a track and field and cross country runner. At Division III Carleton College, he ran track and cross country while competing as a race walker during the summer. ... Dunn’s family is a source of inspiration and support. His twin brother, Malcom, also walked and ran competitively, and is now a cross country and track coach. His mother competes in marathons and his father races sailboats... Dunn married his college sweetheart, Liz Flynn, on September 22, 2001 in Alexandria, Va. Together they and their son Miles and daughter Claire, enjoy traveling, kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, reading and visits to the San Diego Zoo...a three-time winner of the Ron Zinn 50 km Award (2002, 2003, 2008) Dunn graduated cum laude and received his BA degree in English from Carleton in 1993. He also is a race director and is a Level 1 coach...member of USATF Board of Directors.
