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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    So virtually all the difference between his HS 1600 and the new mile comes in the last "lap" (2 indoors).

    Pity that Arkansas didn't have a 3200 as well :-)

    In looking at these results, keep in mind that this was probably not very much aided by pacers. Also, while a very good indoor facility it is a 200m track and 28.47 and 27.72 are pretty good closing marks when you have pulled clear of the competition. I am impressed.

    The only time I have seen GF is the CA HS State Meet last year (on TV). He ran both the mile and two mile essentially on his own and was a metronome of pacing, with the first three of the mile and the first seven of the two within a second of each other, much like this race here. (Those two CA state meet races being the fastest one-day 4/8 lap double by a US high schooler ever). Very fluid and economical looking running style too.

    One can extrapolate Fernandez thusly for yards:

    59.55, 60.74 [2:00.29] 59.69 [2:59.98], 56.52

    He and Wheating make for a high upside USA future.
