Former Kansas track star Bryce Hoppel grew up in a sports family and he started his athletic career running the soccer fields in Midland, Texas. Ironically, staying in shape for soccer led him to things he could have never imagined in a different sport. At first, Hoppel didn’t really like the running. He just liked being one of the guys. Hoppel began turning heads with his teammates in high school, and then in college in Lawrence, where he was a five-time All-American, two-time National Champion and four-time Big 12 Champion. In 2019, Hoppel completed a sweep of both the indoor and outdoor 800 meter NCAA titles, becoming the first male from the University of Kansas to win a collegiate title in the event. And although those were great memories, his greatest memories revolve around his teammates. Now, Hoppel hopes his teammates will be cheering on for another adventure – a run to the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
Bryce Hoppel Just "Getting Started" After Second-Fastest U.S. Indoor 800 + Record Chasing in 2021
CITIUS MAG Podcast with Chris Chavez
"One of the things I feel that I’m pretty good at is the competition side of things. When I do get put up against people like that, the true competitor side comes out in me. It’s like I’m almost pushing my body beyond what it can do just because I don’t want to lose." Bryce Hoppel is one of Team USA’s stars to watch in the Olympic year since he’s the second-fastest American 800 meter runner indoors and the seventh-fastest American outdoors for the same distance. He’s run 1:43.23 and finished fourth at the World Championships. At the University of Kansas, he was a two-time NCAA champion and a five-time All-American. In this episode, you’ll get to know him a little bit better before he takes a swing at David Torrence’s 2:16.76 American record in the indoor 1,000 meters and then you’ll be able to see him in action at the Trials of Miles Texas Qualifier men’s 800 on Feb. 27. 💪 Support for this episode comes from MOMENTOUS.

Episode 2: Bryce Hoppel "There are other pro teams? Still runs 1:44."
Sit and Kick
Bryce Hoppel, an Olympic Hopeful, is fresh off his 1:44 indoor 800m performance, placing him #2 all time for Americans. With breakthroughs announcers ask, "What are you going to do next?" Some athletes say Disneyland, some athletes say buy a house. What does Bryce Hoppel say? "I'm going to the Sit and Kick Podcast!" Your boys are back for the first guest episode of season 4. Bryce brought the Banter, Josh brought the challenging jabs and David brought the snacks. This episode has a wide variety of moods from roasts on your hosts to Dave deep diving into what the natural transition of confidence can be. The highs and the lows. Josh invents a new game on the podcast where the guest must give the first word that comes to mind for a pro running group, the word MUST be non athletic related. Although this game wasn't in the #BanterBowl, it was surely banter. One response Bryce gave was "Thats a pro team?" find out who that team! Dont forget to follow us over social media, don't forget to rate us. We would literally just be talking to ourselves without you. <3 J&D
