asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE's Ryan Bugler returned to the Clemson University Indoor Track Complex two weeks after setting a personal best in the 3,000 meters. Once again he ran to a third place finish and once again ran to a personal best. After running 8:19.21 on January 11, Bugler cut over four seconds from that time as he crossed the finish line with a time of 8:15.03.
It was Bugler's third personal best performance out of four competitive efforts since joining the program in September. He was previously the 2016 NCAA DIII champion in the 3,000-meter Steeplechase and a two-time All American while a student at St. Johns's University in Minnesota.
