I Was Bored, So I Watched Lynn Jennings Win 1992 World XC on Home Soil

In honor of Jennings' 60th birthday, we throw it back to 1992, where Jennings won her third straight World XC title on the same course she claimed the Massachusetts state title in 1975. The other races were packed with stars as well. Kenya's John Ngugi became the first man to win five World XC titles, while the junior races featured future stars Paula RadcliffeHaile Gebrselassie, and Hicham El Guerrouj. It was quite a day.
