Bobby Curtis Goes 13:46.30 at Italian 5000

Bobby Curtis ran 13:46.30 this evening at the Roverto meet in the north of Italy. He finished in 13th place in the race's third clump of runners. Hayle Ibrahimov won the race as a front runner, breaking away from the pack and gapping the second-place finisher by a whopping 17 seconds. After three races at 3000 meters and a two-miler in Birmingham, England, this was Curtis' longest race since the US Olymic Trials 10,000 meters. Curtis carries a 13:18.97 PR at this 5000 meter distance, set in August 2010. Next up on Sunday is another 3000 meter race, this time at the fast track at Rieti.
