IAAF Diamond League Monaco (7/20/2018)
Monte-Carlo, Monaco – Former Clemson track & field standout Natoya Goule set the Jamaican national record in the 800m event at the 2018 IAAF Diamond League Monaco Friday. Goule, who competed for the Tigers in 2014-15, ran 1:56.15 on the world stage to place to shatter her own Jamaican record, which she set at the IAAF Diamond League Paris on June 30, 2018.
Goule ran for current head Clemson head coach Mark Elliott, the Jamaican national record holder in the 10,000m, at both LSU and Clemson. Goule also served as a volunteer assistant coach for the Clemson track & field program this past season.
“I am more than pleased, very happy for Natoya and her continued improvement and success,” Elliot told SportsMax.TV following the race.
“She is realizing her potential, her full potential.”
Elliott believes there is still room for improvement.
“She can keep getting better,” he said. “She just, this season, took another couple of steps so I think there’s a few more left too.”
