Best Story You Haven't Heard Enough Of

After becoming the first American in more than a century to win 1,500-meter Olympic gold in 2016, Broadneck alum Matthew Centrowitz Jr. had a tough 2017.

Not only did he fail to qualify for the event's final at the World Championships, he also battled a hamstring injury, an adductor issue and a viral infection.

But he bounced back very nicely in 2018, winning his fifth U.S. Championship in the 1,500 in June and getting back on track to defend his title at the 2020 Games.
