A great race with Centro still the king.
Bowerman Track Club tried to rabbit the race to set it up for Hill and Evan Jager but ultimately only Hill was able to take advantage as he claimed his second straight U.S. title in a meet-record 7:38.60. Chelimo was the surprise runner-up while Galen Rupp was eighth 27 days after winning the Olympic Marathon Trials.
Shannon Rowbury dispatched the field with ease the final 400 and now turns her attention to a medal at Worlds. Abbey D'Agostino will join her on Team USA after a strong second-place showing.
Laura Roesler (800) and Cory McGee (1500) also made it onto Team USA but men's 800 runner-up Erik Sowinski will have to wait to see if he'll get an at-large bid from the IAAF for World Indoors.
Everything on one page.
The future is very bright for the US in the vault and high jump.

RRW: For Shannon Rowbury, USA Indoors Is A Chance To Look Past Doping Scandals

"[Doping] is an issue very near and dear to my heart, and is something that is very upsetting to me. But, I have to look forward to the things that I can do, and not things that I can't control, and what I want to accomplish. I still, God willing, can have another shot at an Olympic medal that I can have the right way.  I just look forward to the opportunities which are ahead of me.  I'm trying really to focus on that."

2016 USA Indoors Preview, W 3000: Shannon Rowbury Battles Emily Infeld, Shelby Houlihan, Marielle Hall & Abbey D'Agostino

Infeld and Houlihan are among the favorites, but neither will be going to Worlds as they don't have the standard. You heard that right - somehow a 15:00 5k runner who has a World 10k medal doesn't have the 9:00 standard. Only Rowbury, Hall, D'Agostino and Lauren Paquette have the World Indoor standard of 9:00.

He'll have to beat a tremendous field that also includes Garrett Heath and 41-year-old defending World Indoor silver medalist Bernard Lagat.
