SEATTLE: Ethiopia's Yomif Kejelcha and American Galen Rupp worked together and coasted to a one-two over 5000m at the UW Invitational. Kejelcha clocked a meeting record and world lead 13:34.67, while Rupp ran 13:34.78. Bethan Knights was the best in women 5000 m 15:45.94.

RunBlogRun opines: Galen Rupp is beginning his final preparations for the 2018 Boston Marathon, and the 5000 meters is a great way to sharpen up.
