Mari Lynn - West Bend, Wisconsin

"I believe velvet antler helped me to achieve the title of Women's NCAA 1,500 and 3,000 meter Track Champion."

"I find the benefits of faster recovery from training and after racing tremendous."


In high school Marni was an above average runner. 3X state qualifier in Track & Field and breaking several Kewaskum High School records.  But she was never a state champion.  She continued her track career at Carroll College and with the correct balance of training, good nutrition and supplements, including velvet antler, Marni became a national champion.

Now working full time, Marni still takes time to exercise daily and velvet antler remains a important factor to maintain general good health and optimal performance.





Marni Lynn became Carroll's first national champion in any Division III indoor or outdoor track and field event when she finished first in the women's 1,500 meter run at the national meet March 12, 1999 in Ada, Ohio.  Lynn, a sophomore distance runner from Kewaskum, WI, posted a school record time of 4 minutes, 32.73 seconds.   Carroll College Pioneer Athletics News

Marni Lynn wins two national championships

WAUKESHA, WI -  To say sophomore distance runner Marni Lynn had a breakthrough year would be an understatement.  Lynn won not one, but two national titles in track, becoming the first Pioneer track athlete to win a national title in any event.  She won the 3,000-meter outdoor run May 21 after claiming the indoor 1,500-meter title March 12.


Lynn of Kewaskum, WI compiled an amazing list of championships and records in four events.  She shattered indoor school records in the 800-,1,500- and 3,000-meter runs, outdoor school records in the 800- and 1,500-and 3,000-meter runs, indoor conference records in the 800- and 1,500-meter runs and outdoor conference records in the 1,500-and 5,000-meter runs.


After suffering a stress fracture freshman year, Lynn continued to train using non-impact exercises in the pool.  During cross country season sophomore year, she dominated early, finishing first and setting a new record at the Elmhurst Invitational, and finishing first by more than 46 seconds at St. Norbert.  But the injured leg slowed her down and her performances tapered off near the end of the season.


"After cross country, I was really burned out," Lynn said.  "I tried really hard because I didn't want to end my season like that, but I just didn't have anything left.  I took all of December off to rest and get my strength back."


She rebounded for the indoor season.  "I had a good race my first one back and I really got my confidence back,"  she said.  She started winning events at nearly every meet and, during one three-week stretch, set a school record or broke her own school record in at least one event each meet. Her success peaked at the MCW championship, at which she won three events, was named most valuable female runner, and led Carroll's women to their first conference title.  The national championship came just one week later.


"I think (the indoor national title) was the highlight of my season," Lynn said.


To conserve her strength, Lynn cut back on training and competed in fewer events during most of the outdoor season.  The strategy worked - she won the most valuable runner award at the conference meet, led Carroll to another conference title, and won the national championship at 3,000 meters.


"It's hard to hold her back from working too hard during the beginning of the season," said Richardo Varga, assistant cross country and track coach.  "She's a real workhorse."


Lynn takes the same approach in the classroom, where she holds a 3.785 GPA taking 20 credits per semester.  She was named academic all-conference in cross country, and indoor and outdoor track.
