Chelimo wins national championship, heads to World Championships in London

UNCG alumnus Paul Chelimo, a public health major, added another highlight to his career last Friday as he won the U.S. National Outdoor Championship in the 5,000-meter race, dominating the field and qualifying for the World Championships in London in early August. Chelimo has been one of the best runners in the 5,000-meter distance since claiming the silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Chelimo dominated the field Friday to win the men’s 5,000 meters by over seven seconds in a meet-record 13:08.62.
