Hey There. What’s it like in Amman, Jordan?
Columbia graduate Delilah DiCrescenzo took 33rd at the World Cross Country Championships in Amman, Jordan, Saturday, finishing the course in 28:34. That was more than two minutes off the pace of champion Florence Jebet Kiplagat of Kenya.
DiCrescenzo was the second American to finish as teammate Julie Culley was the first 26 seconds ahead of the former three-time Heps steeplechase champion. The United States team entry was fifth behind Kenya, Ethiopia, Portugal and Spain.
Cornell graduate Max King was 40th on the men’s side, about two minutes behind winner Gebre-egziabher Gebremariam of Ethiopia. King was the third American across the tape, just nine seconds behind the first U.S. runner Ryan Vall. The team race was taken by Kenya with the U.S. squad finishing eighth of 19.
