Former Navy runner gets another chance to compete


A former Naval Academy runner is back on track, representing the U.S. this week at the Military World Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Ensign Andrew Hanko of Montville, N.J., the three-time Patriot League champion in the 5,000 meters, graduated from the academy last month, and he’s been training in Annapolis while he awaits nuclear-power school in Charleston, S.C., which begins in September.

Hanko is running the 5,000 in the quadrennial competition; preliminaries are being held Thursday and Friday, with the finals on Saturday.
