Hobbs Kessler Crushes It, Shelby Houlihan Time Trials, and all the Top Coaches Suck

2 months ago

The Countdown to the Trials on LetsRun.com is Sponsored by On and the pre-Trials action really heated up this weekend but high schooler Hobbs Kessler stole the show with his amazing 3:34.36 1500m in Portland. Should he go pro? Will he go pro? Can he make the Olympic team?

Shelby Houlihan is timetrialing instead of racing, is Craig Engels back, and we've got Rojo's Rant with him going off on all the coaches Jerry Schumacher, Mike Smith, Mark Wetmore, Pete Julian and more.

We break it all down, discuss King Ches running for Kenya, Francine Niysonaba becoming a 5000m runner, and high school stars Erriyon Knighton running 20.11 to defeat Trayon Bromell and Jaylen Slade's 10.09 near loss to Noah Lyles.
