You may remember this guy. Before his fame as a 1500m National Champion I had the chance to pick his brain about a few of the opportunities he's had up in South Bend as he continues to blow minds for the Fighting Irish and people all over the county. In a recent interview former DuPont Manual superstar Yared Nuguse shares some of his best memories as a high schooler as well as gives insight on the live of a D1 athlete straight from the comfort of his dorm (...see he's no different than all of us just a wee bit faster)!!
He had us all jumping up and down screaming all the way through but in the end with that famous kick he just edged out Michigan State's Justine Kiprotich with a time of 3:39.381 going down to the thousandths of a second! He may have played with our emotions just a little bit but I'm sure he knew he had it all the way though...right?
