  • more 1500m u.s. men talk

    with everyone talking about krummenacker as the best chance for u.s. 1500 success on an international stage,(which i do believe he is currently) why not talk more about Grant Robinson? i see him improving still throughout this year and having a great chance at winning the 1500 for the olympic trials next season.

    In this competitive world climate a miler should be under 3:55 to be taken seriously.

    A 3:55 mile is a training run for EL G. When EL G decides to break a four-minute mile he puts on a walkman. Nothing like a sub-four minute mile morning run!!

    I have heard good things about Grant Robinson.

      It's Robison...not Robinson,

        i think a way for the united states, to do better would be to follow the 5 phase system, created by great britain coach frank horwill, the system has the athlete train 2 races down and up, as well as their specialty. coes multi tier system was spawned by the system. to many runners are only training their specialty, a 1500 meter runner should somedays train like a quartermiler and half for speed, run of course specialized 1500 meter workouts, and run workouts for a 5-10k runner for strength (which helps with rounds)

          I don't see Krum as Americas best 1500/mile guy. He had one good race over a year ago and seems to love the 800 and like the 1500. The best hopes for Trials next year all have Colorado connections; Robison, Berryhill, Gruber, and Lunn.

            Robison seems like the only one capable of a quantum leap. The others seem to have settled into the 3:55-4:00 class. Not to restart a Webb thread, but he IS capable of sub-3:50.

              Not to disparage the guy, but isn't perhaps Robison's improvement from 3:41 to 3:35 this year about as quantum-leapish as he's likely to get? He's 25 already, and you only get so many big-jump seasons.

                True, but isn't it the guy who shows the most change that is most capable of more change?

                  Krummenacker is the only active American that has run under 3:33 for the 1500. If you can't run at least that fast you won't do much against the Africans.

                      This is how the US 1500 meter Olympic finals result will most likely look like. I know it is 6-7 months away.

                      Krummenacker - 3:37
                      Lunn - 3:40
                      Berryhill - 3:42

                      All of these runners should get the qualifying standard for the Olympics. In fact I believe they already have the standard. I think the Olympic standard is 3:37. Correct me if I am wrong.

                        Sorry--you are wrong. The A standard (which is needed for more than one person to run) is a rather stiff 3:34.90. No American has that. At the moment, only the OT winner could go to AThens (assuming he has a 3:37.10)

                          Krummenacker - 3:37
                          Lunn -

                          Berryhill - 3:42

                          Those three will not make the 1500 meter Olympic finals.

                            Krummenacker could if he is in the form he was in 2002. In 02 he ran one of the fastest US 1500 meter times ever. Even this year before his injury Krummenacker won the world indoor 800 meter title.
                            Despite being 90% this summer he pulled off a 3:35 1500 in Europe. A healthy Krummenacker could pull a sub 3:34 next year, which would be good enough for the "A" standard. Give the guy some credit. After all, he is the defending world indoor 800 meter champ. That has to mean something!

                              Getting the 'A' standard is not the same thing as making the final. If being the indoor 800 meter champ means something, without looking it up, name us the rest or at least those from the past 10 years.
