The past seven days have been "as good as it gets" as Robby Andrews (pictured above by Tim Fulton of ArmoryTrack.com) stated shortly following breaking Alan Webb's national record in the 1000 meter run (2:23.68) by almost a second and half with his 2:22.28 clocking in the New Balance Collegiate Invite's junior men race. After a somewhat slow and strategic first 200 meters, Andrews took charge with only US 800 leader Sadiki White able to give chase. However, Andrews dropped White and the rest of the field with a lap to go and poured it on to the finish line similar to his great close in his Millrose victory last Friday night at the Garden to take down Webb's national record. Andrews ran his last 800 meters in 1:52.3.
