What a sick, sick talent. Has there ever been such a combination of speed and endurance in US history? His 45.92 relay split is an FAT split. Plus he ran 4:09 indoors for the mile. And his 1:48.07 was a joke. He was jogging it. 55.2 1st lap.
"A few hours after running about a 1:52 on the 4x8 relay anchor, he went out in 55.2, a pinch faster than what his coach wanted, and he let loose on the second lap with a 52.9. He hit the finish line in 1:48.07, a time only eight U.S. high schoolers have ever bettered. “That time was never really in my mind,” admits the soft-spoken athlete"
Mark my words, Michael Granville's US HS record of 1:46.45 is going down this year. Jim Ryun's American JR record of 1:44.9y is going down next year.
I know people have been talking about Brazier being a bigger talent than Fisher: http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?thread=6502905 . I have to agree.
