Bryce Hoppel qualifies for 800m semifinals in Tokyo
TOKYO (WIBW) - Bryce Hoppel is moving on to the 800-meter semifinals in his Olympic debut.
The former KU track star finished third in his first round heat Friday to automatically qualify for the semis.
Hoppel finished with a time of 1:45.64. He’ll race on Sunday for a shot at the finals.
“Once we get to that final, I think if I put myself in the right position, I definitely have the ability,” Hoppel told 13 Sports last month. “So I’m hoping we can bring home the gold for the U.S.”
