About
Ryan Hill was able to come through with a third place finish in a true kicker’s race at the 2013 USA Outdoor Championships 5,000m. Behind Bernard Lagat and Galen Rupp, Hill put himself in a position for a spot on Team USA for the World Outdoor Championships. He just needed the appropriate world championships standard, which he acquired weeks later with a personal best time of 13:14.22. Primarily a 1,500m runner during a standout career at North Carolina State, that strong kick helped him grab a spot in Moscow.
