This is created from various sources, the actual finding out guys were OLD in Junior stuff

Everyone knows records are sketchy
Everyone I have spoken to supporters and skeptics, seem to believe Ches is as old as he is reported to be, which is a bit old for his grade, but no different than LV was until he somehow graduated a year early?
My problem with all of this is I want to see american born kids doing this stuff. I love hearing about 16 year old kenyans running 12:53 in Africa, the key being in Africa, these guys aren't American. It ruins the American High School records. American distance running is at a high point right now with Rupp running well and many others at the professional level, as well as the absurd high school times we have seen by American high schoolers, Oshier 4:00.xx, rosas 8:40,s, elkaim 8:46, we are at a huge boom and true Americans are being overshadowed by non-american born athletes. At the same time its nice to see them pulling us through and they are great runs, I just want to see more American athlete press.
