Is anyone else in the class of 2023 going to get in enough college/pro races to run faster?
Time isn't crazy for him anymore but that close in a 56 is very very impressive. Statgangsta says that assuming evenish laps, he should be able to run 3:36 in an optimized race.
Zero improvement LOL
I watched his race at Bryan Clay in person, and I don’t remember seeing him close that hard. It was more like even splitting.
Closing in 56 is pretty dang good and a better race than back then. Being consistently fast is hard. But he is doing it.
His interview after the race… happy but was not content
link for those unaware:
JRRyun 3:39.0 a few weeks after his 17th birthday.
On a 1964 track in 1964 shoes.
just sayin’ what? that because someone else once ran faster this is not impressive. in your logic only world records are impressive….
Seriously, imagine if basketball fans were this annoying. Every time someone has a big game - "yawn, call me when he gets 100 like Wilt".
Just saying that comparison makes him look good. Leo with modern equipment can run that close to the most talented guy ever to run the 1500, a dude later worth 3'24" intrinsic (before superspike adjustment).
Does lex and Leo break four later in the season.
heard that they will attempt that at NON.... along with Hansen, Burns, Birnbaum, Jones, etc.
Jakob Ingebrigtsen 3:31 at age 17 in normal shoes.
El G ran 3:26.
^ The spirit of Calculo / Ventolin is still present.
That would shut me up.
American no name runs 3:39. Great job! At least he’s most likely clean
Anyone else notice that when you click on Leo’s name in the USATF results for this race you get his brother Nico’s racing history?
Well, it seems incredible to me, what can I tell you? amazing in every way
