2020 Olympic Trials M5000 Preview: Battle of Training Partners: Can Chelimo and Bor Upset the Bowerman Party?

Already twice at the Trials, BTC teammates have gone 1-2 in a distance race. Can they do it again in the men's 5000? Will Paul Chelimo make a 2nd straight team? Will current Oregon star Cooper Teare be a factor? What about former Oregon star Eric Jenkins?

It's On Again: Emmanuel Bor and Paul Chelimo Will Go For The American Indoor 5000 Record on Thursday at 6 pm ET (23:00 CET)

Galen Rupp's 13:01.26 indoor record barely survived a record assault two weeks ago. Rather than run an indoor 10,000, Scott Simmons' runners are going to take another crack at Rupp's record on Thursday. This time, they are going for a negative split and hoping a race for glory over the final 1k gets the job done.

2018 USA Indoors 3K Preview: It's Bowerman TC vs. WCAP, Featuring World Medalists Paul Chelimo & Ryan Hill; Shelby Houlihan Should Dominate

In the women's race, we assume Houlihan is going to win and wonder who gets 2nd - Coburn, Mackey, Hall or someone else? For the men's race, we pause and remind ourselves what an amazing two years it has been for Paul Chelimo. Does Ryan Hill - the reigning Worlds silver medallist at 3k - even make the US team against Chelmo and his WCAP buddies? *MB: 2018 USA 3ks: Does Ryan Hill stand a chance against the WCAP studs? Can Emma Coburn make a team on the flat?

The US Army's Emmanuel Bor Becomes 500th American to Break 4:00 in the Mile as Shadrack Kipchirchir (3:55) Holds Off Justyn Knight for the Win in Boston

Today, 60 years, seven months, and 26 days after Don Bowden first ran 3:58.7, Emmanuel Bor became the 500th American to break 4:00 with an eerily similar time - 3:58.77. Despite the sub-4:00 club's expanding membership, it remains a rare feat. Five hundred people (actually 501; Western Oregon's David Ribich joined the club three hours later) in a country of over 320 million represents an exceedingly small number. For comparison, there are more billionaires in the country (540 as of 2016) than sub-4:00 milers.
