@sverige55 qualifies for the Pan Am Junior team for the meet in Lima, Peru very close race with many right there. Threw down a 59 last lap for the win Men’s 5,000m - Nick Wolk, winner “I did not have a whole lot of strategy going in. My main goal was to trust my instincts and see how the race played out. I really was not familiar with the competition. I was going to do my own thing when it came down to it. On his last lap… “I could feel a lot of people coming up my back and made a pass of me with two laps to go. I just hung back for a while until I felt comfortable to make my move to the finish. It is a great. It is a dream. I always wanted to represent Team USA.”
