Sam Prakel Throws Down A 3:59.72 At Guardian Mile

Sam Prakel, who recently announced that he'll be running professionally for Adidas, recorded an outstanding time of 3:59.72 to finish second at last weekend's Guardian Mile in downtown Cleveland. 

The former Versailles star wrapped up his college career at the University of Oregon, where he placed third in the mile at the NCAA Indoor Championship and sixth in the 1500 at the NCAA Outdoor Championship during his final year of eligibility. 

Prakel narrowly missed securing the victory at the inaugural Guardian Mile.  The race was won by New Zealand track legend, Nick Willis in 3:59.31.
