1500m Olympic medalist Josh Kerr and his Coach Danny Mackey on the training, psychology and key workouts that led to him to become one of the best middle distance runners in the world.
Tomorrow the stage is set for a dramatic showdown between the mid-distance stars of three nations: The Netherlands, Kenya, and Great Britain — with a new American challenger. Here’s how they stack up against each other.

The veteran Centrowitz puts on a clinic in 1500m tactics, while young Hocker relies on speed and grit to carry him to a national championship.
Things are about to heat up as Centrowitz and Hocker go head to head and a dozen fast milers compete for three precious spots on the Olympic team.
The race pits Olympians against world champions.
