The Cuse is in the House!

  

On Saturday, at the Boston University John Thomas Terrier Classic, three runners from Syracuse University broke 4 minutes in the indoor mile. In fact, all three of the athletes ran under 3:59. They were led by the sensational Justyn Knight who finished in 3:56.87. This is amazing. However, the full picture is even more amazing. Syracuse has another runner that has also broken 4 minutes in the mile. Last year, Martin Hehir ran 3:59.81. AND the coach of the Orange, Chris Fox, also broke 4 minutes in the mile back in 1983. As far as I can tell, that’s 5 sub-four-minute milers in the same room. To put that in perspective, less than 500 americans have ever broken 4 minutes in the mile. Now, I realize that Adam Palamar and Justyn Knight are Canadian. Still, the collection of athletes in the 315 can no longer be overlooked. Syracuse already proved it can handle itself on an XC course – perhaps track domination is next…

    Wow. It’s interesting how the lists get longer as the years go by. Are we (as home sapiens) getting faster? Or are more people getting engaged in the sport and able to take advantage of advanced knowledge in sports medicine, training, and nutrition?
