Next Up for Charlie Kern: Amsterdam: Update
Elmhurst's Charlie Kern will run in the 1,500 meters on Saturday at the Amsterdam Open. After winning the World masters M40-44 title on Thursday, he'll be in an open field this time with runners who have broken 3:40 heading the lineup at the Olympic Stadium in The Netherlands' capital city. "I've always wanted to run in a European meet," Kern told me before he departed. Now, he gets his chance. NOTE: Charlie was not in the final results from Amsterdam. It might have been because of his sore hamstring. I have no facts. Our best to Charlie, no matter what happened.
