Schweizer storms to huge PR in Belgium


Recent Kimbia signing Karissa Schweizer scorched a huge personal best over 5000m of 15:02.44 tonight in Heusden, Belgium, taking a whopping 15 seconds off her previous best for the distance. She finished third behind fellow Americans Shelby Houlihan and Molly Huddle, with Houlihan setting an American record of 14:34.45 out front.

Schweizer competed for the first time in the colors of the Nike Bowerman Track Club, who she will compete for as a professional under the guidance of coach Jerry Schumacher.
