Congratulations to Galen Rupp who out-kicked Bernard Lagat
last night to win the Olympic Trials 5K and eclipse the meet record of Steve
Prefontaine. And in another exciting race, Kim Conley nipped a fading Julia
Lucas at the line, and met the qualifying standard time as well, to make the Olympic women’s 5K team.
Rupp will also represent the USA in the 10K, having won that
Trials event several days ago.
5K/10K Olympic Teams:
5K Men: Galen Rupp, Bernard Lagat, Lopez Lomong
5K Women: Julie Culley, Molly Cuddle, Kim Conley
10K Men: Galen Rupp, Matt Tegenkamp, Dathen Ritzenhein
