This was so good and beautiful I'm starting another thread because Matt Centrowitz wasn't done after he ran 1:49.3 for 800 AFTER the meet. He came back 10-15 minute later and ran another one in 1:47.9 (with a running start).
I started another thread after the first 800 here:
This was a thing of beauty. I'm sitting here uploading some videos, typing about the meet. I hear some splits being yelled and think it's some dad yelling at his kid as there is some activity on the track. I look up and it's Centro being paced I think by Kyle Merber. I hear 53-54-55 as they hit the 800. Another guy in a NOP shirt jumped in on the 2nd lap and Centro motored all the way around again to the finish.
It had to be an 800 and I'm pretty sure I heard someone say 1:49.3. Pretty impressive as Centro only ran 1:47.17 in the race today.
I thought that was it, but they were still jogging around the track. And then it was on again. Merber leading with a running start and I timed this one.27.8, 54.55 (26.7), 1:21.43 (26.9), 1:48.1 (26.7). Merber dropped out after a lap and the other guy paced Centro the second lap. Assistant Coach Pete Julian yelled to Alberto 1:47.9. They were both very happy.
It was cool to see Alberto hobbling/jogging across the infield giving him splits as the crew cleaned up. "Come on Matthew" or something along the lines he yelled as he was I thought very happy during the second one.
Centro's ready for Rio.
