The third part of the press conference went twenty minutes over. Clayton Murphy noted that he would be hoping for a PB in the 3000 meters. Clayton, the Olympic bronze medalist at 800 meters, has a PB of 8:20 for 3000 meters, so he should be able to run his best.
Paul Chelimo, the Olympic silver medalist at 5000 meters told us how happy he was with his experience at Rio. Paul will be racing the 3000 meters. He noted that he likes to run in behind Matthew Centrowitz, “so I can run fast.”
Matthew Centrowitz, Jr. the first American in 108 years to win the Olympic 1,500 meters, and will be racing the mile here. I asked Matthew if his time on the indoor track helped him in the ability to controll the pace and the field.
Watch for these three on Saturday, January 28! Enjoy the video!
