Throwback Thursday: Oak Park's Cameron Cooper Throws Down Lethal 800 At SPIRE

At the SPIRE Scholastic Showcase in 2017, Oak Park (MI) High senior Cameron Cooper, now an LSU freshman, soloed an impressive US No. 1 time of 1:50.07 in the 800m -- the third-fastest time in prep history -- before he later bested that time at New Balance Nationals Indoor.

He clocked splits of 54-56, though he said after the race that his coach wanted him to hit 54 for the first 400m and 1:47 for the full distance, which would have broken the national record by two seconds!
