Triple Olympian Lisa Weightman is US-bound for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
The 42nd annual Chicago Marathon on October 13 will feature a raft of international stars in the elite field, including Mo Farah and last year women’s champion Brigid Kosgei.
Weightman is considered a strong contender to be on the podium as she heads to Chicago hot on the heels of one of her best career performances to date. The 40-year-old set the Australian all-comers record in her half marathon victory at the Sunshine Coast Half Marathon.
Weightman ran strongly in Chicago in her last appearance in 2017, finishing sixth overall.
