Matthew Barnett writes regarding Lexi’s fall in the 1500 Junior Olympic Championship race, His daughter competed at Junior Olympics and medaled in the 3000 with Lexi

“Lexi is my new hero. I watched that race and it brought me to tears. I can’t believe she pulled off a 4:42 after that fall. Forget medals, no one who saw that race will ever forget what she did. It sent chills down my spine. She will be one of the great runners of our generation. I wept when I saw her get back up and compete. It literally made me want to be more courageous after seeing her compete so hard. She will win hundreds of medals in her lifetime but today she won everyone’s hearts. I’ve never seen anything quite like today. There’s times when 6th feels like first and today was the day. One day I will look back and tell the story of a girl named Lexi who doesn’t know the word quit. She’s my new hero even though she’s 13.”

And then he wrote directly to Lexi the following:

“Forget about medals, placing, or times. The courage you showed during the 1500M today was incredible. When you got tripped I saw the way you got back up and fought. You inspired more people in the way you got back up then winning the gold. I don’t know how you finished with a 4:42 after falling so hard. I’ve always respected you but today you just sent chills down everyone’s spine with that performance. You will truly be one of the greats. It’s about heart and you have it. You should be more proud of that 1500M run as any of your life. You taught so many people about perseverance with that race. Many people won’t remember who won a race years down the road but no one will forget the courage you displayed. You brought me to tears when I saw you climb back into that race. I will never forget epic moment of tenacity on display. You’re a winner! Thank you for teaching us about getting back up no matter what.

TrackFanMan writes: Lexi was in third place moving up to 2nd place in the 1500 in lap 2 and a girl shoved her in the the second lap. She fell into the rail with a bloody knee and injured ankle that she twisted, but still managed to get up being in dead last and moved back up to third place, but fought to the finish and had nothing left and 3 girls passed her at the finish. She still medaled in 6th place with a 4:42. She was feeling strong into lap 2 and ready to take the lead heading into the 3rd lap. She now has an injured ankle and will take some time off to recover.
