    That's just a sick time. Consider the pace (not splits):

    4:03 mile
    7:34 3K
    8:07 2-mile

    Yeah, apparently the last 2000 was almost exactly 5 minutes flat. Really awesome.

    And, I just looked at the results. It looks like he ran by himself from the midway mark!

    It looks like from the splits they posted he ran at least the last 2k by himself. Pretty impressive.

    No, he's far from done. So young, scary fast! And, its his first race this outdoor season? What about when he get in shape in a few months?
