Verzbicas Wins Jim Ryun High School Dream Mile
In addition to being a standout runner, Verzbicas has quite a future in triathlon. He won both the 2009 ITU Junior Duathlon World Championship and the 2009 junior Pan American title in triathlon.
Ryun, a three-time Olympian and the first high schooler to break the 4-minute mile, was named to USA Triathlon’s Board of Directors in February.
Verzbicas hoped to break the 4-minute mark but was victorious in 4:04.38. Check out ESPN Rise for a recap of the race.
