RE: Mottram's Australian Junior 3k Record GONE
The fastest 2 mile by a highschooler in the US is Jeff Nelson with an 8:36 back in the 70s, then a few other guys in the 8:40 range. I didn't know he already had a contract. That is the issue with the US system; including sports in the school system instead of making them club sports outside of school increases participation, but really talented kids have to stay within the system or they aren't allowed to compete in High School or College.
