So, "Centro" chooses to Duck a race with Olympic MEDALISTS medalists Murphy and Chelimo, as well as Jenkins, to run a mile against a soft field this weekend?
Then, in two weeks he is Duck-ing the historical Wanamaker MILE at Millrose Games??
As a miler he should have the advantage in a 3000 over Murphy (800) and Chelimo (5000), and with nothing to lose since people who don't know indoor track assume the 5000 guy has the 3000 advantage.
Maybe he knows the race will be faster than 3:50 Olympic 1500 pace (with 70-second laps!) and is scared to get dropped by Jenkins.
