Andre Rolim

Synchronized Running

In the 800m final at the 2012 MIAA Allstate Meet the pre-race favorite Josh Lampron of Mansfield ran 3/4 of the race right on the shoulder of challenger Andre Rolim of Somerville.
The synchronization between the two runners was phenomenal.

At 55 seconds for the first 400m their average speed was 7.27 meters / second. That's 7.27 mm (or about 1/3 of an inch) in one millisecond. That's about the difference in the height of their heels in the photo above.

2012 MIAA Allstate Results

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.
