Adidas McMillan Elite's Nick Arciniaga, Aaron Braun, Jordan Horn and Scott Smith, to win the USATF 8k National Championship (in Carmel, IN) in a blazing time of 23:05. For his efforts, Mack was rewarded $5000 for first place and hopefully has gotten one step closer to a shoe deal. Here's the USATF press release on Mack's win and here's the video of him breaking the tape. Here's the full race video and here's Mack's post-race interview.
Mack ran 28:11 at the Payton Jordan Invitational 10,000 this spring at Stanford and just ran 4:00.6 in the mile last week. He'll head to Eugene, OR in a few weeks for the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships 10,000 and then, according to his pre-race interview, will run the 10k road championship on July 4 in Atlanta (at the Peachtree).
Congrats Bobby! Go see him at The Athlete's Foot in Cameron Village in Raleigh for some "professional" help.
