Portland Athletes Shining Bright WORLDs

Mo Farah (Nike Oregon Project) kicked off the Portland-based medal count winning gold in the men's 10,000, but it was the surprise performance of Emily Infeld (Bowerman Track Club) that really got Portland track fans excited, as the young star (and reigning PTF 5k champion) grabbed bronze in the women's 10,000m. 

The Bowerman Track Club had a good 20 minutes Monday morning, as Infeld and Shalane Flanagan placed third and sixth in the 10,000m, followed by Daniel Huling and Evan Jager scoring 5-6 finishes in the 3,000m steeplechase.

Keep checking back as we highlight the action of Portland's and Oregon's best track and field athletes at the IAAF World Outdoor Championships

10,000m
On the track

The 10,000m is a race that's losing respect. 25 laps around the track is a race of beauty, of strength and determination. Some of the greatest distance races of all-time have been contested over the distance.

As the big events lose interest in the event, we've seen this as a calling, a reason to launch our own 10,000m right here in Portland.

KEEPING AMERICA'S BEST
IN THE U.S. ONE MORE TIME

Every summer, after the USATF Outdoor Track and Field Championships conclude, America's best track and field athletes jump on planes and head over to Europe, performing their best marks of the season far away from American track and field fans. This needs to change!

The purpose of the Portland Summer Twilight is to keep the world's best track and field team in the United States for one more meet, giving fans the opportunity to see their favorite stars compete after USAs.
