Donavan Brazier won the US championships on June 25. On July 9, Donovan Brazier battled Nijel Amos, and both broke 1:44, with Amos running 1:43.18, the world leader, and Donavan running 1:43.95, his seasonal best. Donavan's fine race in London was his best time since June 2016. At the 2016 NCAA Championships, when Donavan broke the fifty year old, to the day, NCAA 800m record, with his championship winning 1:43.55. On July 16, in Rabat, Donavan Brazier finished third to Nijel Amos (1:43.91) and Kipyegon Bett (1:44.28), with Donavan Brazier in third, 1:44.62.

Donavan Brazier is running well. He is in the medal hunt for London. This is an interview that I did with Donovan for the 2017 NB Indoor Games. Donavan is a fun guy, with a great sense of humor and the athletes at Concord Carlisle loved him. We think you will enjoy this interview as well!

Donavan Brazier set the Indoor and Outdoor NCAA records last year. At the end of his freshman year at Texas A & M, Donovan decided to go pro and run for Nike.

On Saturday, January 28, 2017, Donavan Brazier is racing the 600 meters for the first time. " I have run the distance in workouts, not as a race."

Donavan Brazier, all of 19, spoke to the high school cross country and track teams at Concord Carlise High School. Donavan spoke to the the team, in an interview by RunBlogRun's Larry Eder.

The interview, including questions, went for over an hour, and Donavan told us afterwards, that he enjoyed his first time speaking to a high school team.
