Duane Solomon ran for USC and competed on the USA squad in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Here in the first leg of the USA vs. the World Distance Medley Relay is a gaggle of Olympians and potential Olympians. On the right, Anthony Chemut of Kenya, a 2012 Olympian for that country. On the left, Abdelhadi Labali of Morocco, a possible future Olympian, took Bronze in the 1500m at the World Junior Championships last year. Buried in the middle of the pack is Matthew Centrowitz Jr. running for USA Blue who placed fourth in the 1500m in the London Olympics. He is the son of a two time Olympian... I guess he's in the family business. The tall guy way in the back, running for USA Red is Andrew Wheating, a two time US Olympian who ran in the 800m at Beijing and the 1500m in London.
Here's a rare four time Olympian, Bernard Lagat, running the anchor leg of the DMR. Bernard represented Kenya in 2000 and 2004, winning Bronze and Silver in the 1500m. In 2008 and 2012, he represented the U.S. placing ninth and fourth in the 5k. Lagat holds the Kenyan and American records in the 1500m.
Ryan Gregson competed in the 1500m for Australia in London, and is the Australian record holder in that event.
Neither Caleb Ndiku of Kenya or Aman Wote of Ethiopa are Olympians, but they sure ran like they were at Penn on the final leg of the USA vs. the World DMR. Wote put on a massive kick on the final backstretch and took the race for Ethiopia. Kenya place second and the USA third.
