Donavan Brazier has broken the fifty year old collegiate record of Jim Ryun. I believe that he was 19 at the time. Nearly two years into his life as a professional athlete, I do not believe he is 21 yet. But this guy has some wheels.
This winter, he broke 4 minutes for the mile, and a 46 second 400 meters in a 4×400 meter relay, all in the same afternoon.
In Boston, Donavan Brazier, held on to the charging pace of Boris Berian, and Brazier went by, winning in 1:45.11. He should be ready for Albuquerque this weekend and the 800 meters. The key is handling the altitude and the speed.
A tough field in the 800 meters in Albuquerque. We wish Donavan Brazier the best of luck.
Brazier is trained like a 400 meter runner. Similar to Sebastian Coe, and he won a few 800 meter titles, Donovan Brazier has the speed and endurance of a classic 800 meter runner.
