Colleen Quigley, Evan Jager in Post-Olympic Diamond League Meets

After excellent performances in Rio, Colleen Quigley and Evan Jager will continue their seasons at the Paris (Saturday, August 27), Zurich (Thursday, September 1), and Brussels (Friday, September 9) Diamond League Meets.

Colleen will run the steeplechase in Paris and Zurich. In her 8th-place finish in the Olympic final, Colleen lowered her personal best to 9:21.10. It was her second steeple PR of the year. Colleen is currently the fifth fastest American in history, and could well move up that list by September 1.

After his Olympic silver, Evan will take a short break from steepling to run the 5,000 in Zurich. Evan’s PR of 13:02.40 dates to 2013. A strong run in Paris could make Evan the seventh member of the U.S. sub-13:00 club, which includes his former teammates Chris Solinsky and Matt Tegenkamp.

Evan will return to the steeple in Brussels. We can think of at least one excellent way to finish off a great season.
