Brie Oakley was full-time client for 2 years under the tutelage of Coach Sanderson, and accomplished the largest win margin in Nike (NXN) history in 2016.
"Over the summer Oakley trained with Trent Sanderson’s Team Prep USA, a program for elite runners based in Crested Butte. Sanderson coached Olympic steeplechase bronze medalist Emma Coburn before she got to the University of Colorado. He says Oakley has great running mechanics and can perform at very high heart rates, but her “grit factor” is exceptional as well.
“She’s that type of girl that is ‘Yes, ma’am’ and ‘Yes, sir,’ but there is a deep yearning for success,” Sanderson said. “Running is how she gets to release it. Running allows her to ‘speak’ what’s hidden in her mind, hidden in her body. That allows her to go out and do it in her way.”
