Massive downgrade for Centro. If Jerry can't deliver a Gold Medal like Salazar did, it'll be nothing but a failure and waste of time/resources.
Haha, the NOP jock riders are out in full force trying to downplay this.
1. Centro has not been in gold medal form the last two years under Al Sal. 2017 he was DFL in his prelim at the world champs and 2018 he was just 7th at Monaco (the premier 1500m of 2018).
2. Centro is past his prime. He’ll be 30 during the Tokyo Olympics. You know when the last time was that a guy that old won the OG 1500m? 1920.
