How has his progress been over the last 3 years or so? If he's been dropping at a good rate, maybe he's one to look out for. Not enough info. But it is a good drop. Did he beat some "names" in either race? If they were tactical affairs, the times bode well for continued development.

It should be noted that Heshko is just 23 years old, so he's ripe for a solid dropping of his times.

His 3:46 at 17 isn't bad. Steady progress. Some of our US runners should take note and heart.

If he were an East African, his federation would claim he was 17 - 18 years old.

Yeah, he could be on the Kenyan Jr. squad for another year or so from what I've seen.
