May 16: Jack Meijer 11th in Big Ten 1500m Final

After running and MMK Club Record 3:44.05 on Friday to qualify for the Big Ten Final, Jack had hoped for another fast time. However, Jack completed the first 700m of the race in the leading bunch in a very slow tactical 2:01.13. At this point the race took off. The last 800m was covered by Jack in 1:56.26 for a final time of 3:57.39, with the last lap covered in 56.57. Despite this, Jack could only finish in 11th place.
