Twenty-six-year-old American distance runner William “Woody” Kincaid ran a new personal best in the 5,000-metre distance on Tuesday night. He dropped his previous best from 13:26.81 to 12:58.10. In the race, paced by Canada’s Mo Ahmed (12:58.16 PB, NR), they were looking for the Olympic standard of 13:13.50.

Apparently Matt Centrowitz and Lopez Lamong finished in the time of 13:00. Also in the race were Amos Bartlesmeyer, Julian Henniger, Jeremy Freed, and Liam Meirow.

The race was run in Beaverton, Oregon at the Michael Johnson Track at Nike World Headquarters.

Kincaid competed for Portland Pilots and is currently sponsored by Nike where he is coached by Jerry Schumacher in the Bowerman Track Club.
