Get To Know Martin Kirui

If you're an Ole Miss fan, then you probably know about Barnabas Kirui. The Kenyan is the first two-time SEC Cross Country Champion in school history, an SEC Runner of the Year and an NCAA champion in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. You might not be familiar with Barnabas' brother Martin yet, but after capturing an SEC title in the 3,000-meter steeplechase this weekend, you'll probably be hearing more and more about him. In fact, the brothers Kirui finished one-two in Saturday's final. Martin is in his first year at Ole Miss after transferring from Southwest Mississippi Community College. One of his best performances came at last month's Drake Relays, where he won the 3000 meter steeplechase with the second-fastest time in school history. Check out an interview with the budding Rebel star following that first-place run in Iowa.
