Bumbalough and DiCrescenzo Highlight KIMbia at Heusden

In the northeast part of Belgium, Andrew Bumbalough clocked 13:21 to take 5th at Heusden’s KBC “Night of Athletics,” traditionally home to one of the top non-Diamond League 5000m races in Europe each year. While the former Georgetown Hoya felt he was in shape to PB, 13:21 is still the second fastest 5000 of his career (by five seconds) and placed him ahead of talented runners Yusuf Biwott and Adrian Blincoe, among others. Tim Nelson had a tough one and finished 17th, after taking 6th last year in a personal best time.

In preparation for her steeple in Lucerne this Thursday, Delilah DiCrescenzo stepped down in distance, then went out and won the women’s 1500m in 4:16.08, outkicking a trio of Dutch runners and a handful of international runners. The day prior, teammate Erin Donohue competed the day in Bottrop Germany. Her time of 2:02.46 was good for fifth place, 1.01 seconds away from the victory.
