Biography[edit]

Muriel Coneo was born on Isla Fuerte, a Caribbean island belonging to the Bolívar Department, Colombia on March 15, 1987 as the oldest of four sisters between Carlos Coneo and Alicia Paredes. She began her athletic career at age of 14 when she moved to Medellin in 2001 for training and competing in the Heptathlon.[1] Later, under guidance of Libardo Hoyos, her current coach, she began to run middle distance events including 800 m and 1500 m in which she set several national records and competed at continental and world level as a junior athlete. In 2013 she began to train for 3000 m steeplechase and the same year she placed first at Bolivarian Games in Trujillo, Perú.[2]
