  • Centrowitz 3:36.92

    I had no idea Centro had that kind of kick. Nice! Is he faster than his dad yet?

    his father ran 3:36:70 so he is extremely close.

      Anyone have splits for this race? Would love to know what his last lap was.

                There's a nice feature on Lauren in the Annapolis newspaper. Although it seems to have today's dateline, it refers to her running in the Payton Jordan meet in the future tense.

                    What a pleasant surprise! I didn't see the Ducks scoring any points in the NCAA Championships in the 1500. Now it looks like a possible 10.

                      The general (U.S.) public would be even more impressed if they thought of them both as 3:54 milers.

                        You bet! The Centrowitz' are the best father/son mile team in US history. In fact, the only other US father/son team under 4:00 would be Barry and Darren Brown (3:58.8/3:59.9).

                        Anyone know if the Centrowitz' are the best in World history?

                            I forgot about Martin; thought about Keino and just looked at Andrew's times.
                            "All " Centro Jr has to do now is run a 3:31 and the record is theirs--not an impossible feat, though he's surely a few years away.
