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.” -rise.espn.go.com
That's insane. I went to the same school as him and have raced with him. He is a very special talent.ReplyDelete
