A Run For The Record Books

Earlier this week, Oregon track and field and cross country head coach Robert Johnson met with media to discuss the Ducks' trip this weekend to the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark.

Before previewing that meet, Johnson reflected back to two weeks ago, and the last time Oregon competed on the track. That also was in Fayetteville, and saw the UO men's distance-relay team clock an all-time world best of 9 minutes, 19.42 seconds.

Johnson has been competing and coaching at elite track and field meets for going on three decades now, and that was the third world best he has ever been on hand for.
