Two-time Olympian for the United States Desiree Linden tweeted out the emojis she thinks best fit six notable American professional runners including 2017 New York City Marathon champion Shalane Flanagan.

“Finally updated my iPhone,” she says. “Loving that Shalane got her own emoji.”

Linden, a 2:22:38 marathoner, calls them “promojis.”
