Thompson, Cranny kick to victory for Team USA


Elise Cranny and Josh Thompson scored superb victories for Team USA at The Match in Minsk, Belarus on Monday evening, the Bowerman Track Club duo sprinting to success over 3000m and 1500m respectively and defeating formidable rivals from Europe.

Thompson came from behind to outkick Europe’s Jake Wightman in the men’s 1500m, taking victory on the line in 3:38.88 to Wightman’s 3:38.90.

In the women’s 3000m, Cranny played a patient game and powered up the home straight to snatch victory late in 9:00.70 ahead of USA teammate Rachel Schneider (9:00.77). Cranny will be back in action in the women’s 1500m on Tuesday.
