Kimbia athletes power to fast times in Portland

A horde of Kimbia athletes were in action on Tuesday night at an intra-squad meeting of the Nike Bowerman Track Club in Portland.

Sean McGorty impressed with 13:11.22 to win the 5000m, taking 10 seconds off his previous best. He edged teammate Grant Fisher, second in 13:11.68 to take 18 seconds off his personal best. Evan Jager came home third in an impressive 13:12.12.

In the women’s 5000m, Elise Cranny smashed her personal best with a time of 14:48.02, 36 seconds faster than she ever ran before and the seventh fastest time in US history. Just behind her came Courtney Frerichs, who broke 15 minutes for the first time with her 14:50.06.

In the men’s 1500m, Josh Thompson edged victory in a photo finish over fellow Kimbia athlete Lopez Lomong, both athletes credited with 3:39.66.

Karissa Schweizer had another storming run in the women’s 1500m, finishing a close second to Shelby Houlihan in 4:02.81 and taking four seconds off her previous best.
