In 2000 Lauck turned in one of the most impressive all-around distance performances at the Olympic Trials, trying to make the team in three different events. She ultimately succeeded. Though Lauck placed third at the 2000 U.S. Women's Olympic Marathon Trials in February, she did not qualify for the team for lack of an Olympic 'A' standard qualifying time. At the Olympic Track & Field Trials in July, she was fourth in the 10,000, again just missing a spot. She then placed 5th in the 5000 meters with a PR time of 15:23.71 and was named to U.S. roster for Sydney when 5000m 1st placer Regina Jacobs and 2nd placer Deena Drossin decided to run the 1500m and 10,000 meters, respectively, at the Olympics. Finished 11th (15:47.78) in the opening heat of the 2000 Olympics 5000m. Competed in the 10,000m at the 1999 and 1993 World Championships, during the outdoor season.
