I don’t think Murphy will ever break 1:43 again. It’s been almost 6 years since he ran his 1:42.93 PB. I hope I’m wrong.
6 months ago I would have thought Jewett and/or Brandon Miller might be the future of U.S. 800 running, but neither (especially Jewett) has looked as good as I would have hoped.
Shane Streich looked like he was breaking through indoors, but hasn’t run nearly as well this outdoor season.
There’s definitely still hope for the 24 year old Bryce Hoppel, but he hasn’t exactly made good on his promise from 2019-2020.
Brazier I still have high hopes for, especially considering that 1:13.97i 600 he ran this year. Hopefully his season opener in Doha was an anomaly (already it was an anomaly in that it was the slowest DL 800 ever run).
