    17 year old Akeem Bloomfield ran 45.41 today in his first year running the event.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNdm7tgBuOo

    Taylor 300+100 33.5 + 12.1 = 45.6
    Bloomfield 300+100 32.4 + 13.0 = 45.4
    Bloomfield needs to pace his race better. He could threaten Davian Clarke's NJR if he learns to do so.. Taylor has scary potential. His coach says he has the endurance of a miler!!!

    Ahhhh, but does he have the speed of a sprinter? (10.2, 20.4, etc.)
    THAT is what makes a 400 man.

    Juantorena might disagree.

    If Taylor has 45.69 speed and the endurance of a miler, he should move up to the mile :)

    He reminds me a lot of Lee Evans. Less physically mature, but also an 800 runner. It'll be interesting to see how those events compliment each other, or if he picks one.

    So he would be suited for 800m, wouldn't he? With 45low speed and good endurance it's not that difficult to run at least 1.45 flat.
