Looking over the times... What a great race. Looks like Fisher took the lead with 1km to go and held everyone off. That has to be the first time he has gone out at this level and hammered. He must feel very confident and it showed.
New American collegian record front running for Fisher. Couldn’t of happened to a better person.
Macdonald ran superb as well. Not much separates these two guys. Very exciting athletes to watch compete.
Another exceptional Michigan athlete, Donovan Braizer ran a monster PR and broke Jonny Greys 27 year old US indoor 800 m record
On a sad note... Sure hope the rabbit is okay. Didn’t look good they way his body collapsed. That maybe why there was no TV coverage after that happened. Hope he is okay.

Why do you fools not recognize the fact that Grant is American given his mother is American -period.
How could anyone not like Grant? He is fast, smart, good looking, and humble. I shouldn't be surprised. Rupp is a great runner and great family man but many people don't like him either. People need to accept that Fisher has already competed for the US so he is here to stay.
Both of his parents are US citizens, something you cannot say about other naturalized citizens who have parents that were not born in the US and are not US citizens. In many other countries in order to be considered part of that country's culture both of your parents have to be citizens. Grant does a great job representing Michigan and Stanford.

definitely a roll model - he rolled right in across that big unprotected northern border, took advantage of tax paying Michiganders to get a high school education, and now is freeloading at Stanford taking a place that could have gone to a real American!

Last time I check Michigan was in the US . Not sure about his parents , but GF is def a good ole American
Why make up stuff that is so easily verifiable? He was born in Calgary. Stop tripping over yourself trying to claim him as American if you're not going to do that for everyone else with US citizenship who was not born in the USA. Let's be consistent please.
Born in Calgary, Canada, but is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada.

His parents are not both US citizens -- his father is Canadian, his mother is American. He is not a naturalized citizen. Because his mother is a US citizen, he was born a US citizen. And because his father is Canadian, he was also born a Canadian citizen.
Both of his parents are US citizens, something you cannot say about other naturalized citizens...
You need to get in touch with the US Citizenship & Immigration Services right away. They are confused about this. On their website they say:
