America's King of the Mile
High School American Record holder in the mile.
American Record holder in the mile.
I don't see either of those going down anytime soon, and his High School record will likely last many decades.
He has proven he can throw down with the best in the world (Paris, 2007), just never all came together at the big show.
Been watching him since 2000, never gave up hope for him, but his 1500/mile days are almost definitely over. If there is a comeback, it will be in the 5000 or 10,000. I would very much look forward to seeing that, but if not, thanks for the memories.
(Wish I had the video of the 2005 USA Champs to post, he made the country's elite look like a bunch of high schoolers)
