Olympic triathlon champion Gwen Jorgensen’s transition to running continued in fine form at the Stanford Invite as she won the 10,000m in 31:55.68, defeating NCAA 3000 and 5000 indoor champion Karissa Schweizer and former Princeton runner Carrie Dimoff in the process.

Dimoff lead Jorgensen

Dimoff led Jorgensen

Schweizer got dropped with a mile to go and it came down to two runners in Bowerman Track Club gear. Jorgensen was running in Bowerman Track gear for the first time and Dimoff is in charge of Bowerman’s elite women’s group which is separate from the pro group Jorgensen is now officially a part of. Jorgensen’s 71.36 final lap got her the win by two seconds.

This was Jorgensen’s second track race since moving to running full-time. Her first was a 15:15.64 5000m in February. While Jorgensen’s 10,000m time wasn’t as impressive as her 5000 (15:15 converts to 31:40 on the McMillan calculator), Jorgensen easily defeated the NCAA’s top track runner, Schweizer.

Jorgensen had previously run 32:21 on the roads and split a 31:46 for 10k in a triathlon (likely short).
