On this day 50 years ago, Glenn Ogden ’65 ran a scorching 8:46.0 to reset the University of Missouri’s 2 mile record. The effort came at the Central Collegiate Championships held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Ogden would go on to win two conference championships for the Tigers, taking the 5,000-meter run in 1968 (14:15.3) and 1969 (13:57.6).
