Tegenkamp, Solinsky & Jager Lead KIMbia Sweep in 5000m

KIMbia — and Coach Jerry Schumacher — saw three more athletes join Tim Nelson (10,000m) on the American team for this summer’s World Championships, with Matt Tegenkamp claiming his first outdoor National Title in 13:20.  Tegenkamp, Chris Solinsky (13:20) and Evan Jager (13:22) earned a decisive sweep in the Men’s 5000m, by running brilliant tactical races at Hayward Field, blitzing the final lap in 53 seconds.  Sean Quigley had his best showing at an outdoor national championship, hanging with the lead pack to the bell and ultimately finishing 7th, while Brent Vaughn took 9th. Watch the race in it’s entirety below, and check back for more the rest of this week!
