Madness in Valencia, Kipchoge to Boston, Aaron Sahlman Shocker for Newbury Park at NXN

1 year ago

What a week. Kelvin Kiptum, yes you've never heard of him, ran 2:01:53 in Valencia as Amane Beriso upset Letesenbet Gidey to become the latest woman under 2:15 in the marathon.

We've got Eliud Kipchoge talking about his decision to run Boston and break down the huge upset at NXN where Newbury Park's normal #3 Aaron Sahlman upset Leo and Lex Young to lead Newbury Park to the greatest team domination at NXN on the boys' side despite them having an off day.
