Bile Runs Fastest NCAA 1,500m Time This Season at Princeton

June 4, 2016

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University track & field All-American Ahmed Bile (Annandale, Va./Annandale) ran 3:37.73 to win the men's 1,500-meter run on Friday night at the Princeton Qualifier in Princeton, N.J. The time is the fastest NCAA time this season and is the fifth-fastest US time in 2016.

"I'm very excited to have run such a big PR," Bile said. "Coach Bonsey and I always knew it was something I could do, it was just a matter of getting into the right race on the right day and that's what happened at Princeton. I just knew I wanted to run fast, the fastest time in the country wasn't something I had in mind, but it's definitely a cool thing and I'm excited about that. Coach Bonsey and I both know I have some seconds left in me so I'm excited to see how this summer of racing goes."

Bile's previous personal record (PR) in the 1,500-meter run was 3:43.43. When Bile broke 3:40, he joined just five other collegiate competitors to do so this season.
