Could be heading to the Olympics!!!
Hmm wearing the next% track version I see. Those dragonfly's are unbelievable. There is no question now, that those shoes have staying power.
Mark English in unbelievable form, all things considered. He's a phenom.
The only time you can call an Irishman English.
Any other 18 year olds running that fast in dragonfly’s ?
No question he is a serious athlete but a fair comment that the Dragonfly's are improving mid and distance times all over the place.
Huge talent and was running plenty fast enough before these “cheat spikes” to be labeled a phenom.
My only reservation about the kid is that his coach, Joe Ryan, has had two other athletes who have ran great at age 17/18 before suffering a long spell of injuries and never recapturing their teenage form.
I was referring to Mark English as the phenom. I presume he has been working away during Covid? He probably has to, sort of a continuing prof development kind of thing.
That's a pity about those other two starlings.
That’s all very vague
Imagine I’m a Division 1 assistant coach and I’m seeing a kid run faster than Donovan Brazier at the same age and you are telling me it’ll go nowhere
The coach is Joe Ryan.
His two previous starlets are Shane Fitzsimons and Kevin McGrath.
Shane ran 3:43 as an 18 year old. Kevin ran 1:48/3:46 at 17. Both subsequently suffered injuries and have struggled to regain form. Both stayed with their Joe Ryan
