Ryan Bak, originally from Suffield, Connecticut, graduated in 2003 from NCAA Division III Trinity College with a degree in economics and political science. After a successful collegiate career in both the 1500m and the 5000m, Ryan has decided to concentrate solely on the 5000m and has made drastic improvements. Since moving out to California to train under Bob Sevene and Team USA Monterey Bay, Ryan has dropped his 5000m time by 22 seconds. As one of the up and coming young runners, Ryan looks to perform well at the trials, but has his sights set on the future.
