Dustin Horter ran a 4:07.52 to establish a new Ohio #1 time in the 1600m distance.
Dustin Horter won the 1600m race by 11 seconds in an incredible time of 4:07.52. This result represents an Ohio #1, a U.S. #4, a Lakota East High School record and a new P.R. Additionally, this is the top 1600m time by a junior (2018 graduate) in the country during the 2017 outdoor season and it is also a Greater Miami Conference record!
Below is Dustin's description of the race:
I had a lot of fun running GMC's this week. The weather was absolutely perfect: 65 degrees with little to no wind. My coach and I originally planned to shoot for 4:05, but we were very satisfied when I came through 800m at around 2:02. I wouldn't exactly say I was on fresh legs for this meet but everything is clicking at the right time and going into the post season, I feel like looking up at that clock and seeing 4:07.52 serves as great momentum.
