Andy Bayer 4th in Olympic Trials 1,500

EUGENE, Ore. - Andy Bayer closed out a great week for the Hoosiers at the U.S. Olympic Trials with a fourth-place finish in the 1,500 meters. Bayer outran everyone in the race except for the three runners, Leonel Manzáno, Matthew Centrowitz and Andrew Wheating, who will represent the U.S. in London later this month.
Bayer clocked a time of 3:37.24 for fourth, outkicking eight of the 11 professional runners in the 12-man field. His time ties him with three-time Olympian Jim Spivey for second all-time in the IU record books. With the race, Bayer completes a magnificent stretch of 11 1,500m races since mid-May, that included a Big Ten Championship, an NCAA Championship and now a fourth-place finish at the U.S. Olympic Trials. At 22 years of age, Bayer has another year of eligibility as a Hoosier. Bayer has one more meet scheduled for the outdoor season as he will compete at the NACAC U-23 Championships in Guanajuato, Mexico are July 6-8.
IU legend Rose Richmond took 10th in the womenÂ’s long jump, leaping 6.45m (21-2) for her top 10 finish. The IU alum was a U.S. Olympian in the event in 2004.
