At the 2008 Olympic Trials, Teter, who fell during the semifinals and advanced to the final by a referee's decision, took fourth in the women’s 800m in 2:01.30. However, third-place finisher Kameisha Bennett has not met the Olympic "A" standard of 2:00.00, which means the Eugene-trained Teter is on the team for Beijing…A national-class 800m runner since winning the U.S. Junior championship in 1991, Teter has enjoyed a competitive renaissance since returning to competition in 2000, including her first national titles in 2002…she had a great year with her runner-up finish in the 800m at the 2004 Olympic Trials to make her first Olympic Team…Teter in 2001 moved from Chico, Calif., to Stanford to train with the Nike Farm Team posting a personal-best 800m time in 2002, Teter has always welcomed change…said in 2002 that she plans to continue her running career for the next six years and her goal is to participate in the next two Olympics… nursed a sore foot during and after the 2002 outdoor season; the injury kept her out of the 2003 World Indoor & Outdoor Championships.
