Centrowitz goes into great detail about his own running career, his coaching at American University and his Olympic champion son.
He says Webb's mile record is steep - apparently not knowing that the 1500 record (3:29.30) is better than Webb's mile conversion (3:30.06).
Centro Sr. spoke out about the Jama Aden drug bust and the thought that his son should possibly be an Olympic medalist. “It was devastating to us, the realization that, almost 100 percent sure, someone cheated ahead of him. His coach just got busted. Just the realization kind of made him grow up, that there are legitimate cheaters here.”
Matt Centrowitz Sr.: "I thought somewhere I'd gone wrong as a parent that Matthew needed to get a tattoo to express our relationship. A Hallmark card would've been just fine."
Centro Jr.: "I remember I'd never gotten yelled at so much in my life. The next week we had a plan of running 4:04 and I ran 4:00 even. So I gotta say, it was the right kick in the butt that I needed ... I'm not going to lie. There are a lot of times I feared the man more than I loved him. But I wouldn't be where I am now if it weren't for him being so tough on me."
