The US All-Stars anchored by Erik Sowinski set the world record in the 4 x 800 just ahead of Michael Rutt's NY/NJ Track Club team that broke the previous WR as well. Tremendous race. Mary Cain improved her 1,000m world junior record, Jenny Simpson kicked a lap early in the 2-mile and missed the American record as a result, Nick Willis won the mile, and Galen Rupp dropped out with a minor injury, Kim Conley dominated the 2k, and Ryan Hill placed third in the 3,000 and showed he's the real deal.
