The two Olympic hopefuls won their first career USA titles with the victories and pocketed $4000 each for their efforts.

Kampf, 25, a Minneapolis resident and the runner-up in the event last year, clocked 4 minutes, 36.9 seconds to out-leg Alisha Williams of Denver, Colo., second at 4:39.6, and Detroit’s Danielle Tauro, third with 4:40.0.

Miller, 24, who finished third at the men’s race in 2011, ran 4:04.3, just three days after running a 3:37.13 personal best track 1500m race in Philadelphia. Last year’s USA 1 Mile runner-up Aaron Braun of Flagstaff, Ariz. was second again at 4:05.1. Unheralded Scott Smith, a teammate of Braun’s with the Team USA Arizona program, was third at 4:06.9.
