Kimbia crew set to fire at Pre Classic

This weekend’s Prefontaine Classic in Eugene will markĀ  a pivotal point for five Kimbia athletes as their 2018 campaigns begin to heat up.

Evan Jager will make his outdoor debut in the men’s 3000m steeplechase on Saturday afternoon, a race worthy of an Olympic final. Jager will line up against world and Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto of Kenya along with former Diamond League champion Jairus Birech and 7:54 man Paul Koech.

In tomorrow’s international mile, Henry Wynne and Izaic Yorks will take on a formidable field and both appear capable of dipping below the four-minute barrier. Wynne is coming off personal bests over both 5000m and 800m in recent weeks, while Yorks is a 3:53 performer at his best.

In tonight’s men’s two-mile, Lopez Lomong will take to the track against a strong field which includes Paul Chelimo, Ed Cheserek and world 5000m champion Muktar Edris.
