BYDGOSZCZ, Poland--In one of the most surprising performances in recent memory, Team USA, led by the sixth place finish of Ben True (Hanover, N.H.) earned a hard fought team silver medal in the senior men's 12-kilometer race at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships at Myslecinek Park. The senior women’s team placed fourth with the junior men fourth and the junior women sixth.

It was the first team medal in the 12-kilometer race earned by Team USA since 2001 in Ostend, Belgium, and the first silver medal won since 1984 in East Rutherford, N.J., when Pat Porter led the squad to a second place finish behind Ethiopia.
