Ducks break record in 4-mile relay
EUGENE — The Oregon Ducks set a new collegiate record in the four-mile relay, running the event in 16:03.24 at the Oregon Twilight meet.
Oregon's team of Matthew Centrowitz, Shadrack Biwott, Galen Rupp and Andrew Wheating surpassed Michigan's record of 16:04.54 set in 2005.
While the U.S. record is 16:08.54, set by Athletics West in 1984, Oregon's effort did not break it because Biwott is not a citizen of the United States.
The Ducks also surpassed the Hayward Field record of 16:05 in the event set by the Oregon Track Club in 1968.
