Jager a Fast 4th at Pre

Evan Jager recorded the second fastest steeple of his career in placing 4th at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene on May 30. His time of 8:05.28 was just .57 seconds off of his 8:04.71 American record.

Jager spent most of the race in the middle of the pack, until making an impressive run at 2-time Olympic gold medalist Ezekiel Kemboi and last year’s world number one, Jairus Birech, clearly gaining on the leading duo on the final lap. He was 3rd as they approach the finish, but was nipped on the line by summer housemate Conseslus Kipruto.
