A 148.xx outdoor 800m person must have been asked to race a 200m or 400m relay leg every now and then?
Not quite how any of the Hoeys operated if it could be helped...
I am sure, a sub-1:49 outdoor 800m person as is Josh Hoey is capable of sub-51 400m. Are you implying if he were told to race a 400m relay leg, Josh Hoey would refuse? Except for some high schools in southern CA, TX or FL, a high school T&F coach would usually appreciate a sub-51 400m runner.
Not to mention, he went through the quarter in 51 back when he ran his PR. Hoey obviously has the leg speed for a 48 High to 49 mid.
