Seriously why aren't people talking about this. 1:49.8 is fantastic, but 1:47.95 is insane. I hate comparing Sean to Brazier, but both their 800 times and mile times from their senior year are very similar.
I think they are both running the mile at Brooks PR next week. Honestly with 1:47.95 speed, a time of 4:00 or 4:01 is not out of the question. I don't want to jinx anything....but maybe another "lowkey" sub 4?????????
Difference is that people thought Brazier would run faster than he did in HS, and now faster in his freshman year than people thought he would. Both big stories for different reasons.
I'd say Sean Torpy is more similar to Elijah Greer (1:47.68 as a junior, 3:49 for 1500m as a senior).
