Brilliant post (NOT) by one of LetsRun's finest (NOT) -- old man at a young age. There's that same dreadfully tired "unfair age advantage in high school" theme for Hunter resurrected again. Everything, yes everything, about his high school career was legit.
Hey, dodo, a 19 year old ran a 3:36.77 1500m today. So he's not elite on the world stage at this time with that time. He's still an amazing talent who keeps on improving in his first year as a pro. And who, still as a teen, beat a two-time Olympic 1500m medalist today. How about them apples?
I interpreted this post as complimenting Hunter (i.e. "look at the company that Hunter is in"; "he's doing something that only a few americans his age as done")
That's 100% how it was meant. Lapped Miler is a reliable Hunter fan.
