Ritz Responds, by Walt Murphy


Here is what Dathan Ritzenhein had to say about his record for 5,000 meters, breaking Bob Kennedy's AR, and Bob Kennedy:

"I am still on cloud nine. I knew I was in great shape but I was a little shocked at how great I felt. Alberto told me I could break 13:05 and I believed him but 12:56 was a dream come true. Bob kennedy is a true american icon in distance running and I have always admired him, to break his record is such an honor. I am so happy my family was here to celebrate with me. I want to thank everyone for their support. My family, friends, agent, coach, sponsers, fans. The list keeps going."

Special thanks to Andy Stubbs, Peter Stubbs and Walt Murphy. This was done in the taxi back to the hotel after the meet!
