    400 was his event last year; ran 46 low.

    Why not stay in state and go to UT or A&M, or if he wanted to go away why not Oregon ?
    Wouldn’t it have been fun to watch Cooper and Boling push each other for four years at Oregon?

    He signed with Georgia before he even ran a 100m race and became famous.
    He was a 400m/LJ guy until a few months ago.

    Does Georgia have a say in what he competes in? Do they want him to do the 400/LJ or can he do what he wants?

    Georgia building a stronger and stronger program. They obviously have been good in the multis recently and they are adding to that with Anna Hall out of Denver’s Valor Christian HS. In the sprints, they are adding Arria Minor, many time Colorado state champ in the 100, 200, 400, and relays) winding up her senior year at the state meet this Thursday through Saturday.

    SEC already has a bunch of great coaches, but Petros Kyprianou is certainly building a super reputation in Athens (which only makes sense since he's from Greece - bork, bork).

    Here are the UGA all-time lists with Boling's HS performances inserted (no adjustments to rankings).

    The only list he doesn't appear on is the 400m but that appears to be because he hasn't run a serious individual 400 this year.

    If you add 0.7 to his recent relay split of 44.7, he would also be in the top half of the 400 list as well.

    Let's go with 'honorary' Greek. From his Geo bio:

    While competing in track and field, Kyprianou won several Cyprus and Greek Championships from 1991 to 1999.
    He won the Track and Field Coaching Specialty Academic Award from Greece in 2001.
    Kyprianou received his Bachelor of Science degree in physical education in June of 2001 from Aristotle University in Greece.

    How many of the top 10 400 runners in the world have 10.13 speed? He hasn't trained for 1 lap this year and does a 44.7 relay leg. Could probably do that or better this summer if he's still competing.
