Quote Of The Day
“I’m really disappointed I couldn’t win that because you could just feel the crowd just wanted it. They were like, ‘Man, we really want to see this American beat those Africans.’ It’s a great rivalry, I just couldn’t quite give it to them today. Those guys are really good.”
“… This [gives me] a bit of confidence, but the most confidence I’ve gotten is from working out with Lopez Lomong. Day in and day out, matching him, I came into this race knowing I was capable of doing something good if I just went for it. … It was a great day, but I’m not totally surprised by it.”
– Ryan Hill talking about his 3,000m race at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix where he challenged for the lead the last 400m and set a big PR to run 7:34.87, finishing right behind two of the best 5,000m runners on the planet in Hagos Gebrhiwet and Dejen Gebremeksel. After an amazing start to his first pro season, we ask, “Might Hill be the US’s top men’s distance runner right now?”
