How did UTEP land world class runner Emmanuel Korir?

In nine months in El Paso, UTEP track superstar Emmanuel Korir has answered so many questions.

His explosion on the track scene at a world class level was so meteoric, such a sudden rise from unknown freshman to one of the most intriguing prospects on the planet in a matter of weeks, it doesn’t have many parallels. He made his indoor debut with a world’s leading time in the 800 meters, six days later he set a world record in the 600 and track statisticians began scrambling to find his birthdate (he’s 21).

When Korir validated that with an NCAA championship in the indoor 800 he became a major storyline heading to the outdoor season. EL PASO TIMES
