So, today at work at 7 they had Matt Centrowitz Jr come talk about his running and Olympic experience. I honestly didn’t know who he was, then looked him up on my phone after they told me what the event they were setting up was.
He placed 4th in the 1500 this past Olympics, .04 seconds behind 3rd place. Not bad. His dad was also on the Olympic team back in the 70’s.
I didn’t get to listen to the whole thing, because I was working. Seems like a pretty cool guy though, he’s from Maryland, but of course lives in Eugene, Oregon.
Sorry I don’t have much else to share, it was pretty cool being in the presence of an Olympian, even if he was in 4th. I was more in awe that his coach is Alberto Salazar, and I immediately thought KARA GOUCHER’S coach!!!
