NCAA Cross Country Preview + Who is Athlete of Year? and Return of Molly Seidel

16 days ago

The 2022 NCAA Cross Country Championships are Saturday in Stillwater, Oklahoma and we break them down. The Parker Valby, Katelyn Tuohy match-up is nearly year. Is Nico Young the men's favorite? What about the team battles?

Plus Teshome Mekonen is now a US citizen, could he be an American distance star?

Molly Seidel and Molly Huddle both raced at the BAA half, what does the future hold for them?

And we discuss the crazy World Athlete of the Year voting. Who should win on the men's side? Eliud Kipchoge or Mondo Duplantis?

On the women's side - Sydney McLaughlin or Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
