Teena Colebrook

Postby Pelle3 » Sat Mar 04, 2006 5:15 pm

Teena Colebrook attended the same university I did, and began two years prior to me. She set our uni records in the 800m (2.02,48), NCAA indoor 1000m record (2.41,56), 1500m (4.09,69), NCAA mile record (4.26,16), 3000m (9.05,80) and was #2 AT in the 5000m (15.59,72).

She was a Brit import to our women:s program. Was she popular and/or good in GB? She was an over-the-legal 25 that NCAA I put on its athletes during the day, but our uni was DII at that time (later moved up to DI).

As far as I remember she was this country's best 800 and 1,500 Metre runner for a short while in the late 70s. I suppose at the time I was at the age when such people make an impression on you. I will try to find my old AWs to try to remind myself.

Don't know about that but (Chris)tina Colebrook and Jane Colebrook were the same person as far as I can remember.

Can't someone persuade her to come on here and tell us the story?

Huh? I don't think so....Jane's married name was Finch. If I'm wrong I must be having a significant brain fart :shock:

Didn:t know she had a sister who also competed. During my time, it was only Teena who was on the line-up card.

Just come accross this discussion from a few years ago.Teena Christine Colebrook is her full name, her sister was called Katrina Jane Colebrook and is 10.5 months younger. Two different people but I can understand the confusion as I am Jane and often people thought there were three sisters. I was called Jane from a young age as my Grandma got confused with Teena and Katrina. My dads fault as he gave Teena our mums middle name of Christine not thinking that Teena(Tina) is short for Chirstine and then to give me the name of Katrina when lots of people thought teena was short for Katrina. We both had successful careers over many years also into Vets athletics where we won world vets champs upto the age of 40. My career was curtailed by marriage and having 3 boys, my most noticeable achievement was at age 19 winning the Europeen Indoor champs 800mts in San Sebastian in 1977 in 201.1 equalling the world record at the time. It stood as a British record for 26 years until Dame Kelly Holmes broke it. My best time was 2.00.6. My married name was Finch and after my divorce and a few years later I ran as a vet under my new married name of Weston. Teena has never married, lives in the States and no longer runs because of recurring and persistant . I just do a bit of jogging now and again also because of recurring calf problems. Hope this answers everyone's questions.
