I can’t post a story every time Henry Wynne does something remarkable.
Well, I could, but there wouldn’t be room for any other stories on “06880.”
However, the 2013 Staples High graduate — the greatest male runner in school history, who set a state scholastic record in the mile (4:05.04), starred at the University of Virginia, and now runs professionally for Brooks Beasts — has done something beyond remarkable.
A few days ago at a Boston University invitational, Wynne flew to a 3:51.26 mile.
His personal best was good only for 4th. But he shouldn’t feel bad. The race produced a new world indoor record: Yomif Kejelcha’s 3:47.01.
The first 4 finishers all achieved world championship and Olympic qualifying standards.
Wynne is now the 7th fastest US indoor miler ever — and the 15th fastest indoor miler in world history.
