Olympic Marathon Trials 1st Look, A Woman Goes Sub 29, Kelati Get American Record, Rupp 62:37

1 month ago

The action heated up on the roads and the anticipations for the 2024 US Olympic Marathon Trails increased.

Agnes Ngetich blasted a 28:46 10k to become the first woman under 29 minutes as a no-name woman followed her in 2nd, Weini Kelati ran 66:25 to break the American record in the half marathon, while Galen Rupp only ran 62:37.

We break it all down and then at 66:28 take our first look at the US Olympic Marathon Trials which are in 2.5 weeks.
