Villanova alumna Marina Muncan, competing under the Serbian flag in the Women's 1,500, failed to advance to the semifinals of the event at the London Olympics.

The 2006 grad ran the first round heat in 4:11.25- 3.42 seconds out of qualifying.

Sheila Reid ran in the second heat of the Women's 5,000 meters, finishing with a time of 15:27.41, putting her in 15th place, which was not sufficient to move on to the 5000m final. It was a disappointing result for Sheila, but in the end, she made it to the Olympics, gained valuable experience running on that stage and will likely get a second chance in four years.

"Lots of mixed emotions after my race. So thankful for the opportunity to compete but altogether unsatisfied with my performance," she tweeted after the race. "I know in my heart I will be running down a medal in Rio. But, for now, I am truly humbled to have competed with the best in the world.

"Thanks to every[one] who got up early to watch! I feel so lucky to have the support of not one but TWO countries: Canada & the #NovaNation!"
