    He has obviously thought this out, with the 1500 heats beginning Aug 2. That will give him 8 days to recover. I guess that will be his final "hard workout" prior to the Olympic racing. If he comes close, or breaks the record, it will be a great boost for him. I would love to see him repeat!

      I hear it's gonna be pretty breezy... I'll guess somewhere btw 3:48.5-3:49.5. It'd be sweet if he runs 3:46, though.

        I'll take the over, but hope for the under.

          And may be preperation for that Olympic racing which might include Cheruiyot going at 3:29 pace or faster.

            If Centro breaks 3:50, who is going to argue that Hocker doesn't have a shot against Cheruiyot also?

              Moi, because Hocker has yet to run that pace and show that he still has the fierce kick. Teare beat him the one time he ran that fast.
              [Not that I'd bet against Hocker]

                3:49.26 PR, his pacers couldn't go far enough fast enough.

                  Gutsy run. Love to see him in a rabbited DL after the OG. He's in great shape. I hope the hype of T Cher's pace-making in the OG Final comes to fruition. J Inge will stick, Can Hocker? The Aussies will hang and a Brit or two.

                    I will.

                      I’m still not convinced that the long year for our NCAA athletes competing in Tokyo, won’t finally catch up with them. I guess we’re about to find out.

                        I'm not convinced a 3:35 guy can compete with 3:30 guys. It would be a huge accomplishment for either collegian to make the final.

                        BTW congrats to Centro on a nice mark heading into the OG.

                          I'm sure there are some hatas out there who see this as a Big Failure, but I admire the guts to make a called shot to centerfield, even if it's caught on the warning track.

                            Let’s see. The defending Olympic champion sets a new PR 10 days before his Olympic races. I’m not seeing a failure here.

                            On the other hand, I’m pretty sure the rest of the contenders have been watching the video of the 2016 Rio race so that they won’t allow that to happen again.
                            I’ll be stunned if it doesn’t take better than 3:32 to medal.

                              Curious he did it before...a time trial I suppose more than an actual attempt at the AR..
