Niels Laros is barely 18 yet he has run 1:46, 3:38 and 13:23 and is a pro runner for Nike. The teen phenom joins us at 81:20 to talk about his amazing career and start in the sport.

Faith Kipyegon got her world record and became the first woman to go sub 3:50 for 1500, Mo Katir got the big 5000 PR as 3 Americans ran sub 12:57, but Luis Grijalva was faster than them all.
