This is week five, day 1.
Let’s talk about Josh Kerr. Josh took the Olympic bronze in Tokyo in the 1,500 meters. In the last 200 meters, Josh, who had kept himself in the battle the entire race, blasted a fast last 200 meters, moving into bronze medal, and just missed taking the silver medal. Josh had been running at the elite level since his time in university, but in 2019, he took sixth in the World Championships in Doha.
In 2021, Josh emerged with his 3:31.55, a North American record, breaking the 1984 Olympic time by Sebastian Coe! Josh looked great at the Stumptown Twilight, and as the summer went on, Josh kept looking better and better.
On January 29, 2022, Josh took second to Ollie Hoare, both breaking NRs. Josh ran 3:52.27 for the indoor mile, breaking the Scottish record, and his fastest running in the month of January ever. In a couple of interviews, Josh made it clear that he is trying to shake it up and that he wants to collect more medals, more PBs and more victories over top athletes. To get better, Josh Kerr told the media that he has to race!
