Says he won the Australian Junior Championship for 800 and Cross Country.
1. Ovett, in his time in the last 3 years has NOT won any Australian Championship
2. He didn't even go to National Cross last year
What a load of crap. Ever oregon is lying or the ovett kid is a liar.
He came 5th in 2011-http://www.athletics.com.au/home/competition/events/2011_australian_junior_champio/complete_results in a time of 1.57, which is not a poor time by any means, but not worthy of an oregon athletic scholarship.
What about our own kids (american) who run 1.52, 1.53, 1.54 their senior year, where is their scholarship?
It seems like these days, its not who you are, ITS WHO YOU KNOW.
