Craig Engels Addresses Retirement Rumors, Port-A-Potty Business, Life After Missing the Olympics | Pre Classic Bonus Interview


“I don’t want my motivation to be other people. There’s part of me that realized that’s what I was leading up to the trials. I want to be more than a mullet and a mustache. I want to be more than just making teams.”

Shortly after finishing second in the Prefontaine Classic men’s international mile, Craig Engels sat down in the Magic Boost tent to briefly chat about how he’s found fun in the sport after finishing fourth at the Olympic Trials in the men’s 1,500 meters and missing the Tokyo Olympics by one spot. He addresses the recent rumors that he may be contemplating retirement.

We kept this conversation fairly short since we’ll likely record a much longer episode in-person, if Craig competes at the Fifth Avenue Mile in New York City in September.
