A Celebration for Olympic Bronze Medalists Jenny Simpson and Emma Coburn

On Sept 30, Competitor helped honor Olympic bronze medalists Jenny Simpson and Emma Coburn at a party at the Flatirons Running/New Balance Run Hub store in Boulder, Colo. Coburn, 25, earned the bronze in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, while Simpson, 30, earned her bronze in the 1,500-meter run. Both are former University of Colorado standouts who are sponsored by New Balance and still train in Boulder under coaches Mark Wetmore and Heather Burroughs. After Boulder mayor Suzanne Jones read a proclamation to honor all five of Boulder’s 2016 Olympians, fans, friends and local runners watched video replays of the women’s 1500m and steeplechase races while Simpson and Coburn offered up interesting commentary. Check out the scenes from the party below.
