as someone already stated, the 2 mile record is one of the weakest on the books. 836 is nowhere near the 800m, 1500m, mile, or 5k records. if he runs the 2 mile at pre he should get it. he won't get it at the high school meet, its hot/humid every year there. that's one reason that record stays around, at the biggest hs 2 mile of the year its crappy conditions. pre classic should just host their own hs 2 mile every year as part of the meet. hs kids would love running there instead of hot ass north carolina. better weather, better stadium, better fans, etc.
