Clement won her third consecutive USA Outdoor 1,500m title in 2007 and she
also set a personal best in the 800…Clement used patience and a strong kick to
her advantage in winning the women’s 1,500 meters at the 2005 USA Outdoor
Championships. She did not lead the race until she passed Jen Toomey and Amy
Mortimer halfway down the final straight to win her first-ever U.S. title in a
then personal best time of 4:06.73. Her performance shattered her previous
personal best in the 1,500 by more than two seconds. Despite running some
excellent times in the 800 of late, for now Clement said she is focusing on the
1,500 for the big meets. Clement was a sociology major while at Georgetown…is
engaged to former Villanova 800m runner Paul Moser.
