Rotary Lunch Program: Rebecca Mehra – Women’s 800/1500 Racer

Rebecca Mehra   On Tuesday, August 10 2021, our lunch speaker will be professional track athlete, Rebecca Mehra. Rebecca will come give our club an idea of what it’s like to train for the Olympics during a pandemic.

Originally from Palos Verdes Estates, California, Mehra was one of the few athletes in state history to compete in eight state meets — four in track and four in cross country. Mehra helped lead Palos Verdes to the Division III State Cross Country title in 2011, a second place finish in 2010 and a third place finish in 2009. Individually, Mehra was the State Division III Champion in Cross Country and set seven school records during her high school career.

During her collegiate career at Stanford University, Mehra ran both indoor and outdoor track, as well as cross country. As a three time All-American, she served as an anchor for the Cardinal team. Some of Mehra’s accolades include 3rd place NCAA Indoor DMR (2016), 6th place NCAA Outdoor 1500M (2017), USATF Championships Finalist 800M (2019), and 3rd place 5th Ave. Mile (2019). Currently, Mehra is a professional track athlete for Oiselle, who lives and trains in Bend, Oregon.
