    Exactly! This kid is the real deal. Let's hope he continues to develop at a nice, steady pace....
    He does have a history of injuries so I will enjoy what he accomplishes now with no great expectations of future improvements. If they come, fantastic! If not, well, that is the way things work sometimes.

      Indoors? I have no idea. Not that close to the outdoor records, but not bad (WJR is 3:50.25 by Alex Kipchirchir in 2003. AJR is 3:51.3 by Jim Ryun in 1966).
      Statistician Marty Post pointed out to me that Boaz Lalang's 3:58.34 from the 2008 Tyson Invitational was the fastest-ever indoor mile by a junior. Born 08-Feb-1989, he was 19 at the time and he doesn't turn 20 until Feb. 8 this year.

        64.58

        65.06
        61.59
        8:34.23 (ditto bastard 3200)

        Still haven't deleted that broadcast from my TiVo . . .

        Fernandez’s previous best was 4:01.69 (a conversion from 4:00.29 from the bastard 1600) to win the Cal State title last year.

          And yet, despite all the mewling and posturing of the sport's greatest mind and its greatest magazine, it's STILL the 1600! :P

            You seem to take pleasure in that. Where did this guy go??

            [quote=Marlow]I've been giving this a lot of thought. I think 'fizbin' is right. The 1600 and 3200 are pathetic half-breeds - neither fish nor fowl. I hope the NFHS looks into this matter! Thanks for bringing this up, fizbin, whoever and wherever you are![/quote]
