Ben Shearer Talks About Winning TAPPS Distance Triple Crown

- - -

Ben Shearer is one of the best distance runners in the country. He is also very good in the middle distances as well. Despite the effects of COVID-19 on the 2021 track and field season, Shearer has still been able to run PRs in three distances (1:53.88, 4:08.58, and 9:06.20 and 8:48 - 2 miles).

The Woodlands Christian senior has been selective on where he ran and chose to only put a small amount of runs on his legs. Some of those races included the 800m, 1,600m, and the 3,200m at the TAPPS Track and Field State Championships.

"I have a lot of big races and I'm ready to go."

Now that the triple crown is complete, the University of Arkansas is focusing on more. Shearer has a goal to run a sub 4:00 mile, "whatever the challenges are, I'm ready," he says.
