I googled Erassa and it looks lik he went to school in GA for HS. Anyone know if he's American?
According to his OSU bio (
), Erassa ran 14:19 in HS. Has scored in Big 12 in mile, was top 20 at Big 12s in xc this year.
Who are the credentials of the other Americans in the race?
Where do they go to school?
Any brits out there? Who are your guys?
Considering Erassa ran for the US, I'd assume he's an American citizen although I know Lukas V did compete for the US in triathlon and he's not an American.
As for bios, it looks like USATF has bios of everyone in all the races.

What about the junior girls results?[/quote]
The race people sent them to us and are here:
You are thinking of Andrew Gardiner. This is a different guy (8th Footlocker 2008)
Cuffe 2nd, Seidel 3rd, Knight 5th... very impressive performance for the US juniors. Nathan Weitz finished up pretty close to the front, as well as Gardner, so WA did well today!
erassa was a great hs runner he's east african but i dont know if he's a us citizen, eddie owens was a good hs runner 8th at footlocker i think was a great 3k steeple runner (sub 9) in highschool, freshman at princeton this year had a solid 1st year
