What’s with that jank track?
Blocked by the idiot in blue.
Yeah definitely not possible that he’s just not as good as he thinks he is.
would’ve been funny if a record lasted 26 years only to then last an hour. but i suppose sumner could miss too
I had him at 53
Second all time…he’s good
How dare another racer have an impact on the race! Time trials and laned events only, I say.
I was thinking he had no chance at the record when I saw the calf sleeve, the venue--Franklin Field (Penn Relays rarely see fast times and never in the distances), and the quality of the field. He gave a heckuva run at it, and now he's run two great ones, just a bit short of the national record, but #2 all time is awfully good. Maybe next week he will run 1:45.
I guess you didn't see the guy in blue ended up finishing last in the field. He wasn't racing, he was just in everyone's way.
He sure is. But the guy who took 2nd probably is the greatest US HS mid distance guy ever.
He’s GREAT. But now he looks like an idiot basically saying he was going to obliterate that record.
Has at least one more shot, maybe several at US Sr. Nats.
Hope he takes another swing at it, maybe in cooler conditions. But what is with the calf sleeve? Injury??
Well hopefully he doesn't have to pass any other runners in these upcoming attempts, or some people on LR are gonna melt down completely.
A quick search shows that he's a highschooler with a 1:50.47 PB. He had every right to be there and you're acting like he should've stepped off the track because he got out ahead of Flatt. Give me a break, that's called being in a RACE.
I want to see the record fall but I don’t think USA’s is the best place. It’ll be a more tactical race (depending on the the heat) more than likely and I don’t think the traffic is conducive for record breaking.
Had some bad luck with the kid who went out ahead of him, but he was talking like he was in 1:44 shape so hard not to see this as coming up short
The real travesty here is he only can run 4.5 more miles this week.
Yeah, well he ran 1:53.48 today. That's 8 full seconds behind Flatt, and kind of makes make point he had no business going out that fast. I'm pretty sure his coach isn't going to say that going out in 51.25 was always the plan...
