Bernard Lagat and Georganne Moline are headed to the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia. Lagat, an Arizona volunteer assistant coach, won the mens 5,000-meter race at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, with a time of 14:56.16. Now 38 years old, Lagat claimed his fifth USA Championship in the event. Moline, who recently graduated from UA, finished second in the 400-meter hurdles, running the second-fastest time of her career (53.88) to gain the runner-up spot. For finishing second, Moline qualified for the World Championships. Moline still holds the No. 3 time in the world at 53.72, her personal best. Moline also earned runner-up finishes at the 2013 Pac-12 Championships and the 2013 NCAA Championships in the 400-meter hurdles. "Im feeling excellent," Arizona head coach and Moline personal coach Fred Harvey said in a statement. "We got a couple more on the team (for the World Championships) today, so Im very happy about that. "She did everything we wanted to do, but the one thing she has to fix is her negotiating the ninth hurdle with her non-dominant leg. She was in position to win and set a new personal best, but she messed up her stride somewhat on that ninth hurdle. Were aware of it and working on it, it just takes time, and we know that. The impressive thing is that she made that error but she still got second and made the World Championships team. Obviously, you want to win, but shes second at the highest level you can possibly be at. "
