Andrew Wheating. Fresh out of college competing for the powerhouse Oregon Ducks, Wheating is America's largest hope in the mile/1500m. NCAA champ several times over and holds pr's of 1:44.56 for the 800 meter, 3:30.9 for the 1500 meter and 3:51.74 for the mile. He is young and already has proven that he can run with the top dogs. One thing that I find interesting is his height along with his speed. He is 6,6 yet he can still run very fast, he towers over the ethiopians and kenyans he races. Usain Bolt is 6,5 yet he is a sprinter. It is much less common to see a tall distance runner. I think it goes to show that height does not determine how fast or slow you are. Andrew Wheating has a long career in Track to go. He along with many others carry the hope of a nation to bring back American distance running into the national spotlight. His future looks bright.
