THE BRONX – Even though Manhattan College alum Aliann Pompey won’t be competing in this year’s Olympic games, she is still heading to Rio.
Pompey reached the Olympics four times, running the 400-meter race for her native Guyana. She reached the semi-finals twice.
Now retired, Pompey coaches at St. John’s University, and will head to Rio to help guide the next generation of Guyanese runners through their first games.
