Clayton Murphy ranked #1 U.S., #6 World
The annual Track and Field News rankings issue has been mailed and as expected our own Clayton Murphy earned a #1 U.S. ranking at 800 meters. The only other time since the rankings began (1947) that an Ohioan has been ranked first was in 1972 when Dave Wottle brought home gold from Munich.
Clayton also earned a #6 World ranking. (Personally, I thought his Olympic bronze should've had him ranked higher than 6th).
His 1:42.93 ranked #1 in the U.S., #4 in the World and is the 5th fastest time ever run by an American. Only 2 Americans have ever run faster (Johnny Gray, 3 times and Duane Solomon once).
