  • Grant Robison's status?

    Does anyone know what Grant Robison's progress is this year...re: preparation toward the OT's? Is he keeping a low profile because he want's to focus on the OT and OG, or has he been injured or something?

    If he is injured then US 1500 meter running is in bad shape. Imagine US 1500 meter running without Robison this year. That means only Krummenacker has the A standard, and we don't even know if Krummenacker is running the 1500 at the trials.

    The last two years has been a nightmare for US 1500 meter runners.

      15mph: Lunn has run back-to-back sub-3.40s, and a 3.59 mile on top off that in the last three weeks.

      Robison has competed this season, recently winning a 5,000m at Penn (14.06,63) and running 3.41,43 at Stanford Qualifier behind Lunn, Riley, Stember, Sage and Spiker.

        Good to hear. I believe a healthy Robison can make it to the Olympic 1500 finals.
        Remember, Pyrah made the 2000 Olympic 1500 finals with only 3:36+ speed in 2000.

            He also ran a couple of relay legs at Penn. One was a 3:42.

              Unless the other US 1500 meter runners reach the A standard Robison will have to carry US 1500 meter running himself. In this day and age 3:40 just does not cut it.

                Thanks for the info...actually I remember now that he had run the 14:06.6 and 3:41.3...I guess I am really wondering if he is right on schedule i.e. not running too fast too early, or if he is having problems that are holding him back. 3:41.3 is quite a ways from his 3:35.48 PR.

                  Those 3.35 PRs are European summer peak PRs for Robison, Jennings and Stember. These guys - and all of the competitors - know what it will take to get on the team, and how best to tackle the A standard by mid-July.

                    There were some unconfirmed rumors Robison had some injury troubles earlier in the year. Stanford's coaching staff likes to keep such stuff close to the vest, so I emphasize unconfirmed. Vin Lananna once told me Robison has remarkable ability to "get himself to where he needs to be quickly," meaning he can raise his game in training when it's called for. Of course, Vin's no longer his coach, but Robison ran great in cross under Andy Gerard and has plenty of time to get from where his current races indicate he is to where he needs to be. I'd put money on him being in the thick of the Trials final... as always, barring illness or injury.

                        Who else in the US can run a 3:35 1500 besides Krummenacker. Stember and Berryhill ran their 3:35 1500s quite some time ago. There are many 3:40 US runners that won't have a chance making a dent on the international stage.

                        40 years ago a 3:40 1500 was a great time. Today it is a time of a typical journey man runner who has a slight chance of making an Olympic team. Of course he also has to get the Olympic B standard which is 3:38. The only place a 3:40 will get you respect is in the NCAA.
