Runners from the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program triumphantly took the team trophy from the Brazilian Army at this year’s Army Ten-Miler on Sunday.

The All-Army WCAP team dashed away with the international Army trophy after defeating the three-time reigning champions from Rio de Janeiro.

Now, if we can only figure out how to beat them in soccer.

“We beat the Brazilians,” Spc. Robert Cheseret said moments after leading the elite U.S. squad of four men by finishing third with a time of 48 minutes, 20 seconds. “They haven’t finished the official results, but we did the math with our times and we should be ahead of them. We are very confident that we did it, so I’m very happy about that. “Everybody worked hard to make sure we won it, and we did it.”

Cheseret, 27, a native of Kenya who won NCAA championships at both 5,000 and 10,000 meters on the track for the University of Arizona, was the U.S. Army’s shining star on this day at the Pentagon.
