The bell will signal time for one of Oregon’s most decorated runners, Jordan Hasay when her college career is concluded in the 5,000 meters at the NCAA Championships on her home track at Hayward Field
On arrival at Oregon she had a fine reputation from Mission Prep having won all she could, including a high school record in the women’s 1,500 at the 2008 Olympic trials. Five years on from accepting Oregon’s invitation, she must have no regrets after becoming written into Ducks folklore.
Hasay won four straight national indoor team championships, winning two individual indoor national titles, four Pac-12 crowns and also named in 15 All-America teams.
Hasay has been preparing to compete in the 5K and 10K, aiming to be selected for U.S. Track and Field at the World Championships in Moscow.
‘Hopefully, I run the best 5K of my life. I’ve run 32 minutes in the 10K. I’ve run 4:10 in the 15(00), and I’m not going to say what kind of shape I think I’m in, but it’s a lot better than 15:37.29.’
‘I can’t describe how much it’s meant to me these past four years to run as a Duck. It’s exciting that I have my last race at the home turf, and yeah, it’s going to give me a huge advantage.’
