Aman says that he knows the "secret" to beating David Rudisha, but won't reveal it until after Rudisha retires.
The Oregon Track Club's Charles Jock (800), Ben Blankenship (1500), Hassan Mead (5k/10k) and their coach Mark Rowland are focused on USAs and waiting to see what happens with the NOP doping investigation.
Earlier in the year, Aman joined the OTC, but that was just a precursor to getting his citizenship and representing team USA at Rio 2016.
"I am at a crossroads in my career and the Olympics are right around the corner again.... I have heard so much about Coach Mark Rowland and how passionate he is about the sport and his athletes that I wanted to see for myself."
Aman, who has a 1:42.37 PR and three world titles to his name, said, “I want to run fast. OTC Elite is a good team with a good coach and I want to improve my performance. It’s so amazing for me to be able to run here. This is TrackTown. If you run in Eugene, the audience will support you and they know about track races, so I am very happy.”
Nine USA meets for Leo in his life, nine top 3 finishes.
Liao asks if he's risking a lot leaving coach Mark Rowland, but as Rojo said, we think he'll be just fine as veteran distance runners are usually a co-coach with their actual coach anyway.
