Flotrack Kick of the Week (May 4)
The Flotrack Kick of the Week comes from Oregon's Matt Centrowitz Jr in the men's 1500. Centro kicks down a 3:33 guy (Lukezic) and a national champ (Emanuel) en route to the fastest outdoor time in the US this year (3:36)!! This was a race where the slowest time in the field was 3:39, just sick. The time also ranks 5th on the world list. Congrats to Matt, this week's kick of the week!

Jordan Hasay and the high school journey
Jordan Hasay has less than two months before her historical career through high school track and field will come to an end. Jordan talks about her journey over the past four years and how she has changed throughout the process. Her coach Armando "Mando" Siqueiros has played a huge part in her ability to stay healthy and have continued success.
We'll have more with Jordan on Friday as she'll be racing at Payton Jordan this Saturday against collegiates and professionals for the first time since the Olympic Trials past summer. And although one chapter is about to end, don't worry. She'll be ready to roll next year as a Duck.

Tasty Race of the Week (May 4)
This week's tasty race comes from the 2009 Payton Jordan Cardinal Invite. Stanford's Chris Derrick and Oklahoma State's German Fernandez headlined the story with the talk of taking down the American Junior record. As the race unfolded Derrick made a strong move, German began to fade. The an unexpected Hassan Mead took the lead and never looked back. German started to come back but Mead, Derrick, and Jager were too strong. Jager moved past Derrick just before the line for second, but Derrick still held on for a new American Junior Record at 13:29. Mead's time is now the third fastest in the NCAA and Jager's 13:28 was a pretty nice debut. Bottom line, the US has some great young talent!! Good news for the years to come....

In heat 2, the US Junior 5k record of 13:37 (held by Galen Rupp) will be on the line as German Fernandez and Chris Derrick will match up. On the women's side, the 1500 will be a great one.
