A New Sport Fashion Star

Maggie Vessey hasn't yet made it to the Olympics but the 32-year-old 800-meter champ from Soquel, California, is winning in the sports fashion world.  In an interview with Runner's World , Vessey explained that, after losing a sponsorship with New Balance earlier this year, she began collaborating with L.A. designer Merlin Castell to create chicer gear.

"I do want to draw attention to the sport and maybe give people who aren't necessarily interested in track and field a reason to be interested... it is a very authentic expression of who I am, and I now have this opportunity to be able to put that out there, be bold, and take a risk." - Vessey
