Only .10 off the American Indoor 800-meter Record held by Johnny Gray, Donavan Brazier ran 1:45.10 to seal his ticket to Birmingham. It looks like he just barely eased up before the finish line, which is a no-no. ALWAYS RUN THROUGH THE LINE.
Gray still owns the American record and actually has run faster than 1:45.10 twice with another 1:45.08 to his name. Stats!
This race certainly makes Brazier a favorite for gold in the 800 at worlds. Book it.
Drew Windle was very impressive as he rallied back on the last lap to come in second in 1:46.29. He was in LAST at the bell. Talk about wheels!
