Following an impressive performance at the Brutus Hamilton Challenge, Emmanuel Korir (800m) and Lilian Koech (800m) were named C-USA Tack Male and Female Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday Afternoon.
Korir clocked in a time of 1:43.73 to garner the second-fastest time in NCAA history just behind Donavan Brazier�s record of 1:43.55 registered in 2016.
The mid-distance runner is one of only three men in history to have personal-bests under 1:44 (800m) and 45.00 (400m). Korir (21, Kenya), Mark Everett (22, USA) and Alberto Juantorena (25, Cuba).
Koech clocked a personal-best 2:04.68 winning the 800m run. Her time ranks eighth in the country and third in the league.
This is Korir�s second C-USA outdoor weekly honor and Koech�s first of the season.
