Beyond the Stride (Ep. 5): Ky Robinson

Ky Robinson, who may have an argument of being the best men's distance runner in the NCAA right now, was able to join Lane Nine for a new interview episode!

The Cardinal superstar breaks down his journey from Australia to the NCAA, Stanford's up and down 2022 XC season, his brilliant 10k/5k double at the outdoor national meet and his reaction to his now-former teammate, Charles Hicks, turning pro.

All of our BOOST subscribers can now watch the fifth Lane Nine episode on our "INTERVIEWS" page under the "CONTENT" tab!
