Alexi Pappas qualifies to represent the Greek olympic team in rio

Runner, Actress, Poet, and Social Media Personality Can Add One More...Olympic Athlete

May was a good month. In early May, Nike Oregon Elite Alexi Pappas realized one of her many dreams when she ran the 10,000 meters in 31:46 at the Payton Jordan Invitational, shattering the Olympic Standard time and securing her place on the Greek Olympic team. (She set a PR at the event, and broke the Greek national record by nearly 40 seconds)

As a duel citizen, Alexi qualified to represent the Greek team in Rio this summer in the 10,000 meter event. She will be the first Greek woman to run the 10,000 meters at the Olympic games. A dream come true.

The film was shot in historic Eugene, Oregon and features professional athletes, like Andrew Wheating and Nick Symmonds, as actors.

Pappas is a poet, essayist, actress, filmmaker and popular personality on social media was recently featured in the New York Times.  The author suggests Alexi's "appeal far transcends her results. Her lack of pro-athlete pretension that draw fans, primarily teenage girls who run cross-country, to her."
