Emma Coburn continued her reign on the track Sunday, clinching her 10th 3,000-meter steeplechase at the U.S. Championships.

The 31-year-old crossed the line at 9:10.63 for her fastest time of the season, besting Courtney Wayment and Olympic silver medalist Courtney Frerichs.

“I’m very proud of that, being a 10-time U.S. champion in the same event,” Coburn said. “It feels like a lifetime achievement award. It feels special and complete. Not saying I don’t want an eleventh title.”

Athing Mu left Eugene, OR victorious as well, taking first place in the 800m Sunday. The Olympic gold medalist ran to a thrilling finish, clocking a time of 1 minute, 57.16 seconds, squeezing past Ajee’ Wilson who finished at 1:57.23.

The top three finishers in each national championship race will compete for the United States at the world championships, which will also be held at Hayward Field in Eugene in July.
