A couple of years ago, the odds were pretty high that Andy Trouard wouldn't even be a runner right now -- he was planning on becoming a triathlete. Now he's the NCAA 3,000-meter champion. Here's how it happened.
We've got video of all the amazing records in case you missed them.
Come on admit it, after the 5ks, you just assumed that both Knight and Schweizer would easily complete the 5k/3k double, but that didn't hapen as somehow Trouard, who had never scored at NCAAs before finishing 5th in the 5k, beat Knight.
Michael Norman broke the 400m world record, Elijah Hall the American 200m record, Kendall Ellis the American 400m record, and Gabby Thomas had to settle for the 200m American record, and then USC won the 4x400 crushing the world record, but Texas A&M which finished second got the record.
After last night's debacle in the DMR, Josh Kerr got redemption with some style points added on as he dominated whereas Elle Purrier won her first NCAA title by the tiniest of margins over Dani Jones.
In an exclusive post-race chat with LRC, Kerr vowed to do something special on Saturday, “I was watching even the World Championships indoors, being [won] in 3:58 (for 1500m), that's not an exciting race to watch and we're going to try and make it exciting tomorrow.”
Justyn Knight easily had the best kick in the men's race whereas Karissa Schweizer won her race in a totally different manner - by leading every single lap and then throwing down a 4:38.33 final 1600!
And sadly the Oregon Duck athletes weren't allowed to talk to the media.
