Str8 Smokin Track Club, MI

Class of 2022, Boys 15-16 -- 400mH

Myers is here for one race and one race alone. 

The 400mH.

He will be heading to the meet this week in the hopes of earning defending his title at the AAU Junior Olympics. Last year, he not only won the 400mH title in a personal best time of 52.68 seconds, but he McCray (above) by just 0.01 seconds.

It was a truly wild finish (above). 

Since then, he has run in two 400mH races this outdoor season. He has produced a season best time of 53.48. Consider this: The national record for the 15-16 age group is held by Robert Griffin III of 51.77. Myers has the opportunity to put this record in jeopardy.

In 2018, he placed second in the 200mH with a 24.81.
