April 12, 2010
Eugene, Oregon – The Oregon Track Club Elite will send a contingent of
athletes to the 52nd Annual Mt. SAC Relays this weekend. The annual
event will be held on the campus of Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut,
California starting on Thursday April 15th and culminating on Saturday
April 17th. The early season event will give several athletes the
chance to post strong early season performances.
The OTC’s Sally Kipyego will highlight the club’s entries in the
women’s 5,000 meters on Friday night. Kipyego will be looking to
break her own OTC record in the event (14:52.67) which she set at the
Boston Indoor Games in February.
Other OTC Elite entry highlights at Mt. SAC include a pair of US
Olympians making debuts in their signature events. Beijing Olympian
Billy Nelson will run his first 3,000 meter Steeplechase on Thursday
night, while fellow Olympian Christian Smith will run both the 1,500
and 800 meters.
Rounding out the OTC Elite entries are Kevin Chelimo in the 5,000
meters, while 2008 Indoor NCAA Champion Tyler Mulder will be joined in
the 800 meters by teammates Matt Scherer and Elias Koech.
