Has any Kenyan run that fast at that age? That's incredible. About a 4:00.2 mile for someone who could be a 9th grader right now (same birth month as Hunter). Best converted mile for a US 9th grader is about a 4:11.

Do American's have to convert age to college year to work out hold old someone is. A school year can cover someone who for example is 15 or 16. There age is how old they are not what year they are in.

Just put how flipping old they are.I know you just love saying these terms soph freshman etc it's almost a hoobby in itself.[/quote]

I find this truly infuriating. Comments like "that is very fast for a sophomore - do you mean a HS sophomore or a college one? And if a HS one, is he 14, 15 or 16? Then you get "that's fast for a sophomore, but he's more like a junior".

Just put their flipping age or better yet, year of birth. Then it starts making sense to the rest of the world. Who cares what year they're in for HS or College? It is just irrelevant. Having freshman records is also irrelevant, as the age can vary wildly.
