Meet Marcella Piersol
With the 2020 Championships not happening, we want to give everyone the opportunity to meet their fellow athletes. As part of our Athlete Profile series, we would like to introduce you to Marcella Piersol, a retired Lieutenant with the Los Angeles Police Department. Marcella has competed off and on throughout her entire career mostly in running events. In 2013, after turning 50, she wanted to challenge herself in a new age division and ended up setting records in the 1500 and 5000 meter run in Track & Field. This ultimately gave her the confidence to compete at the World Games in 2013 in Belfast, Ireland, which turned out to be one of her all time favorite travel experiences.
In 2019 she decided to challenge herself again by competing in cycling for the first time in San Diego; winning 2 Gold Medals.
