People here were nutting themselves when German Fernandez ran 4:00.x/8:34.x for a 1600/3200 outdoor double. Both of Jakob's times are intrinsically better (worth around 3:59.x and 8:30-31), and he is 1) younger, 2) running indoors in early February, and 3) apparently solo so not even sure if he was trying that hard without video evidence.
People here DGAF since Jakob's not American?
The double makes it better, but nothing a 3:56 guy last year shouldn't be able to do.
I hope that he doesn't continue to overrace like last year.
Tripling makes it worse. It's not that I'm unimpressed by the performance for a 17 year old, but that for this athlete, it is not surprising or eye-opening to run slower times than he has or was capable of. This is a kid who ran 8:25 in the steeple last year!
Did he run the 1500/3k within 2 hrs like German?
