University of Oregon senior Galen Rupp claimed his first U.S. track and field record today at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark. - placing second in a fast indoor 5, 000 meters.

Rupp previously broke high school records, junior records and collegiate records.

This one is the biggest yet. The 22-year-old took down a record older than he is.

Rupp, who took the lead with 600 meters left and held onto it until about 200 left, was beaten to the finish line over the last lap by Ethiopian Bekana Daba. Rupp finished in 13 minutes, 18.12 seconds. That broke Doug Padilla's record of 13:20.55 set in 1982 in New York. It's also the NCAA record and the Oregon record.

Daba surged past Rupp to win in 13:17.89.

The race went out in a first mile of 4:18.9, and the second mile was run in about 4:16.

Third-place finisher Sam Chelanga of Liberty University finished in 13:19.79, also going faster than the previous U.S. collegiate record.
