You are correct. No American has ever won a DL 5000 - male or female so True made history.
Lauren Fleshman won the 5000 in the London 2011 DL meet.
Admittedly I'm not 100% sure that this was a DL race but wikipedia seems to think it was.
Yeah I remember Lauren winning that race in 2011, I thought it was a diamond league??
Regardless, a fantastic result from Ben True, one of the good guys we can root for. Always classy on and off the course, but fiercely competitive, blue collar worker, nice guy. I am excited to see him continue to improve and ASCEND TO GODLIKE STATUS.
He is also one hot hunk of man-flesh. I mean seriously. Blue steel anyone?
