Lopez Lomong's Incredible 5000 meter debut

At the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational meet last night, Lopez Lomong put on a show, well actually two shows, as he won the 5000m race in his debut at the distance. Not only was it an awesome show of strength and speed, but it was quite a humorous race. I am glad I stayed up to watch it live. If you missed it check it out here. To skip ahead to the last two laps, start watching at 11:30.
