RIP Kelvin Kiptum, Millrose Games Grades, LOADED USATF Indoors Preview

5 months ago

The running world tragically lost one of its brightest lights, Kelvin Kiptum, the world record holder in the marathon, the man who in 10 months revolutionized how the marathon can be run, tragically passed away at the age of 24. We pay our respects.

Then we turn to an amazing 2024 Millrose Games where Devynne Charlton started things off by breaking the world record in the 60m hurdles but the highlight was Josh Kerr running 8:00.67 to break the 2-mile world record and take down Grant Fisher, plus American records by Ellie St. Pierre, a big run by Yared Nuguse, Hobbs Kessler and even Cole Hocker. Plus, Alicia Monson broke an American record and Rojo wasn't that impressed.

We break it all down and then take a look at a stacked USATF Indoors.
