Because of conflicts with Graduation, Andre Rolim was our lone competitor in this year's Outdoor Allstate Championships.
Andre ran well, placing 2nd in the 800m run and improving his own personal best by more than 2 1/2 seconds.
The start was aggressive. After one step Andre was in 5th place.
He dropped back, ran to the outside, and passed these four to take the lead at the end of the first turn.
Andre leads a tight pack at the end of the first lap with his evil twin, Josh Lampron, glued to his shoulder.
Check out the position of their feet, and their arms; their bodies are perfectly synchronized.
Andre's time of 55 seconds for the first lap was his fastest yet, but perfect for the occasion.
Lampron breaks the 37 year old meet record while Andre takes 2nd in 1:53.38.
Everyone slows down toward the end of a fast 800m. Lampron slowed 2 seconds, Andre 3, and only a couple of others were close.
