1500m in 4:45
And to win the Junior Olympics.

What was it like to win the 800m race at the AAU Junior Olympics in 2015?
It’s very fun to run at the Junior Olympics, there’s kids there we’ve been competing for the past 3 years against each other. My best race was the 800m final at USATF because I almost broke the national record.
