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.
Fanboy! Beyond fanboy! And comparing it to the endless obsession of Curry's pregame is perfect because, as always ESPN is always late to the party.
You will be tripping over yourself to tell us you just knew NOP was dirty, if that ever comes out. And here you're gushing and slobbering over a them flaunting their ability to recover and do whatever they want I'm front of everybody. And you publicize it!
