4:04 High School Miler Swims 20-25K per Week!

Lukas Verzbicas, the high school phenom from Orland Park, Illinois, won the Jim Ryun HS Dream Mile in 4:04.38, reportedly runs 40-50 miles, bikes 150 miles, and swims up to 25,000 yards every week.

Is there is anybody in the world today who swims that much and runs close to 4 minutes for one mile?

“I’m not just a runner and not just a triathlete,” says Verzbicas, who hasn’t started to explore college options. “I’m doing both. I’m training my whole body. It’s something different, something outside the box.”

  1. That's insane. I went to the same school as him and have raced with him. He is a very special talent.
