I can't say that I am surprised. That race played out in Andrews' favor. There is no one more fun to watch than Robby Andrews with 200 to go. Centro is the master technician but Robby has talent in spades. The gap is narrowing.
It was a 3:48 race that kicked down to 3:44. Robby being a former 800 guy should have been jogging at that until the last 150 meters. Not sure any gap has closed until we see them in a 3:30-3:33 race. Remember Andrews beat Wheating indoors for 800 when he was a frosh, and Wheating was an 800 OLYMPIAN! A kick race on the boards is his wheelhouse.
But that could be great for indoor worlds if it is a slower race. He has the kick to medal potentially. He also could do well outdoors in a final if it's a 3:38-3:42 type win. If he can get down to 3:31-3:32 it will be fun. Hope Wheating can get back there outdoors as well.
