Former Wichita State distance runner Aliphine Tuliamuk-Bolton became an American citizen Friday.
That makes her eligible to compete in the United States Olympic Trials in July in the 10,000 meters. She owns the No. 6 time in the world in the event, 31 minutes, 54.20 seconds.
In 2013, Tuliamuk-Bolton, a native of Kenya, ran the fifth-fastest 10,000 meters in NCAA history with a time of 32 minutes, 7.20 seconds.
