USTFCCCA honors Oregon Duck distance runner Edward Cheserek as an athlete of the week

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Association selected Oregon distance runner Edward Cheserek as NCAA Division I men's athlete of the week on Monday.

The UO senior set the collegiate indoor and absolute records in the mile Sunday at the Boston University Last Chance Meet.

Cheserek won the race in 3 minutes, 52.01 seconds.

The time broke the collegiate indoor record of 3:52.88 set by Lawi Lalang of Arizona in 2014, and the collegiate absolute record of 3:52.44 set by Sydney Maree of Villanova in 1981.

Cheserek is a 15-time NCAA champion who has qualified for next week's NCAA Indoor Championships in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters as well as the mile. He could run as part of the Ducks' distance medley relay.

At last year's NcAA Indoor Championships, Cheserek won the 3,000 and 5,000, and anchored Oregon's winning DMR.
