The 5th Camel City Elite at the JDL Fast Track indoor facility on Saturday saw some outstanding performances led by 2016 Olympic 5000 silver medalist Paul Chelimo’s win and facility record 7:45.49 in the men’s 3000 meters. Chelimo is the world indoor leader at 3000 meters and today’s time was another top 10 world mark. Two-time Canadian Olympian Melissa Bishop defended her women’s 800m title, clocking a world class 2:02.49, currently ranked 10th in the world, and Rachel Schneider won the women’s mile in a personal record 4:28.03, the fastest time of the year on a regulation 200 meter track.
Meet Craig Longhurst, from JDL Fast Track, who explains how MONDO did more than just a track but it helped to create a place where athletes can compete at the highest level.
