Nick Willis is a middle distance veteran. He is also the 2008 Olympic silver medalist at the 1,500 meters. Watching Willis race is a real treat for any distance runner: Nick makes few mistakes in his racing. He positions himself well, he prepares for his final move, and that move is done with the precision of a surgeon.


His race at the 2015 Millrose Games was a near perfect race. In the end, he and Matt Centrowitz took it to the line, with Centrowitz taking the win.

But that is the issue with a guy like Nick Willis. The Kiwi Michigander just does not like to loose. And he does not lose often.

So, as we watch Nick Willis go to the line on Saturday, February 20, we should be prepared for an exciting race.

Be prepared!

Enjoy the story about Nick by Chris Lotsbom.
