I'm sorry. Fernandez did this as a 17 year old.
Wow, Verzbicas you can run low 14's for the 5k as an 18 year old.
Fernandez ran 13:25.
Seriously, German's performance was way better. He did it by himself within 2 hours of each event. Legendary.
Lukas won Footlocker twice by the time he was 17, German was nothing but a distant 3rd who gave up as he so often does. Lukas turned, 18, so freaking what, there isn't a magical dividing line between 17 and 18, especially a young 18. Fernandez ran 13:25 at 18, after a full year of training as a collegian, when he should have been doing base for XC, and ruined his college career. Many great college freshman could have run faster than German's "great" freshman times, if they were pursuing mere times instead of placing in NCAAs. Lukas V. > German Fernandez.
I forgot all of Lukas's NCAA championships. Thanks for reminding me. Yeah, he's clearly better.
And his superior win of Footlocker over a tough crowd of kids. His years winning footlocker had way better talent than Chris Derrick, Luke Puskedra, Colby Lowe, (and somehow) Michael Fout.
And I also forgot all his HS pr's that are better than Fernandez.
O wait. I'm being sarcastic for all this sh*t.
Also name a collegiate freshman not named Chris Derrick who could have run 13:25.
