In Stunner, U.S. Men Beat Kenya For Silver at World Cross

An amazing performance by the U.S. men, as they finished second to Ethiopia and beat Kenya to take second place at the World Cross Country Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland. It was the highest U.S. finish in the senior men’s race since 1984. As you can see from the highlight video, the conditions and the course were tough. Ben True comes through in sixth place just as the video ends. Chris Derrick finished 10th, Ryan Vail 17th and Bobby Mack 19th. By our calculation, if Rupp or Ritz or Meb had attended this race and finished in the top seven, the U.S. men would have won gold.
