King runs second fastest 3K time in U.S.

From Staff Reports

Feb. 2, 2007 - Not many people can run two miles faster than Kyle King. In fact, only one other American has run faster this year.

King, a former Wildcat standout, set a personal best in the 3,000-meter run last weekend with a time of 7 minutes, 55.57 seconds on the indoor track at Boston University's Terrier Classic Invitational.

His performance was the second-best by an American this year, eclipsed only by Thomas Morgan's time of 7:54.45. King and Morgan are teammates for ZAP Fitness, an elite training center in North Carolina.

King's performance continues a steak of personal bests he has run in each of his three years at ZAP. It was his fifth personal record in the 3K in three years.

King holds the 3,200-meter record for Sulphur Springs High School, set during his senior season in 1999, and he was a cross country and track All-American at Baylor.
