“Those are coming up quickly, so this gives us a nice gauge of where things are right now so we can do a little bit of fine-tuning before the Games,” Romanchuk said. “It’s a huge honor to be able to represent the U.S. To bring home a medal would be incredible.”
Romanchuk will head home to Champaign, Illinois, to continue training and getting physically and mentally prepared for the Games. It will be his second time competing in the Games with Team USA.
He’s more excited than nervous for the opportunity in Tokyo.
“I try to just remember that the games are just another 10K,” Romanchuk said. “It’s still just a 400-meter track. Just need to go out there and do what I need to do.”
