Hoppel, who owns the second-fastest indoor 800-meter on the U.S. all-time list, will open his outdoor season in the two-lap this weekend after racing in the 1500m at the USATF Grand Prix in Oregon last weekend.

The 23-year-old posted an impressive 1:44.37 during the indoor season to improve his personal best, which is seventh fastest ever on the all-time list indoors and second quickest in U.S. indoor history behind Donavan Brazier’s North American record of 1:44.21.

Hoppel enters this weekend’s meeting with an outdoor personal best of 1:43.23, and although he is not expected to challenge that mark this early in the season, the American star will be aiming to put together a solid performance to get close to the current world-leading mark of 1:45.23 by Australian Peter Bol.

Kansas track & field teams will be hosting an outdoor meet at Rock Chalk Park for the first time in nearly two years this weekend. Among the teams competing at the 2021 Rock Chalk Classic are Kansas, Missouri, Oral Roberts, Missouri State, Lincoln (Mo.), Kansas State, North Dakota State, Southern Illinois, Wichita State, Colorado State, Texas Tech and Iowa State.

The 2021 Rock Chalk Classic starts at 2:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. CT on Friday with the field events and continues into the afternoon with the track events beginning at 4:00 p.m. / 3:00 p.m. CT. Saturday’s action begins at Noon.
