Jakob's 3:31 at age 17 last year equates to a 1:43-mid 800, so Max has a good way to go to match that, but man he is slicing huge chunks out on a seemingly weekly basis now. It will be very interesting to see where tehy land by next year.
Jakob is more of a 5000m guy. Probably will never run 1:45. He has a real shot at sub-13. Max may run 3:31, but probably not sub-13.
You know they could still both improve quite a lot.
These are not African '17 year olds'.
