Can we talk about how Centro portrays himself on a pedestal compared to these college kids, all in part because of his gold medal. But if you're gonna flex your gold medal so hard, WHY ARE YOU RUNNING IN THE B HEAT OF A 5K?
Let's be serious, he may have beaten Hocker (after Hocker did all the work), but he should've been in the A heat if he wanted to live up to the figure he tries to flex on these college kids. That meet was set up for guys to run fast times, and I'd say it's pretty soft for a 1500m Olympic gold medalist to be in a B heat of a 5k that is mainly made up of U.S. runners. Also, Cooper ran way faster that day and come the trials, I see no reason why Teare and Hocker couldn't finish ahead of Centro/Ciliantro. I'm not saying they make the team(I give them each a <10% chance), but Centro needs to come to the fact that he is not the same runner he was in 2016.
