Ryun didn't break 9, he sucked.
Whoa! Tough crowd!
But a long ways from 3:53.
Lukas has the National Record in the 3000m??

5th high schooler to break 4
First to ever do the triple at indoor nats
If he wanted to he could break Rupp's NR in the 5000m if he ran USA nats, but he's already proven himself to be the greatest. All he needed was a sub 4 mile which he now has

Sorry, but I just can't get excited about this.
Jim Ryun's still the best.
Lukas V in my opinion is the greatest high school runner in US History. I am sure others feel the same way after he obliterated the 2 mile record and today went on to win the mile in sub four fashion. He could take down Rupps 5000 meter record as well if he wanted to. I think he will be a great 5000,10000 guy which I think should be his specialties when he becomes a pro. Olympic Champ 2016!

Good God. Why not just savor the fact that an American boy ran sub-4:00?!
