The wait is over today! Multiple time state champion and U of Tennessee commit, Karl Thiessen makes his return to competition after forgoing the indoor season. He will be racing in the Tri Cities (TN) Track Classic in both the Mile and Two Mile distances.
Karl owns a 5K pr of 15:09 and is one of the fastest SW VA athletes ever. He also has some serious track speed with pr's of 4:21 and 9:19 in the 1600 and two mile. When you combine that type of speed with a historically great endurance you can get one big superstar.
His return is feared by some but definitely welcomed by us as he continues to set records. His return, LIVE on MileSplit this Friday and Saturday is one of the most anticipated things this outdoor season.
