Lakewood Ranch senior John Rivera competed in his third indoor contest of 2017 at the Dunamis Sports Group Prep Classic in Texas and picked up his second win in the 800m run. Rivera, who has ran in Ohio, North Carolina, and now the Lonestar State jumped out to the front early and never looked back, crossing the line in a new PR of 1:53.38. See what he had to say after the race.
Rivera's outdoor PR is 1:53.88 from New Balance Nationals last year where he was 7th. He was 8th at the 4A state championship meet and looks to improve on that finish in 2017.
