Minnesota's John Simons goes to the Alex Wilson Invitational last Saturday with a mile PR of 4:08 and change. He runs 3:59.32 in the B heat and is shocked beyond belief. Enough scratches on the national list get him into the NCAAs, where he then gets himself into the final and runs fifth.
Just another guy to All-American in one week.
Yea, the Alex Wilson meet is a fraud, the only ones that qualify have done so unfairly and do not do good at NCAAs. For instance, they cannot hold a candle to those who run great times a month earlier.
