Robert started running high school track in 2000, after watching his older brother Bernard Lagat compete in the Sydney Olympics. He found early success, qualifying for the regional championships, and later competed in college. At the University of Arizona, he won NCAA Championships in both the 5k and 10k distance races. After commissioning into the Army, he has continued winning races, including the 2010 US 5k National Championships. And his Olympian brother is still his hero.

To be successful in sports, you need to have a goal and stick to it. Hard work and consistency are the keys.
