Austin Tamagno a freshmen at Brea Olinda high school in Southern California ran 4:11.1 yesterday in the 1600 meters. He is 15 years old but looks like a 7th grader. I believe that is the fastest time ever for a freshman in California. I was also told that this is the second fastest time historically in the nation.
Austin's first 1600 a few weeks ago was 4:18. He followed that up with a 4:14.8 two weeks ago. Yesterday, competing in the Orange County Championships - he finished second in his amazing 4:11.1.
He has also run 9:18 in the 3200 meters at Arcadia. He is the real deal.
