Another athlete to keep an eye on up at the Armory this weekend is freshman Michaela Rose. Though she will likely be in the unseeded section, it is not out of the realm of possibility that this freshman could stage a huge upset. She currently sits at US #23 (2:13) but with her outdoor pr would rank inside the top 10.
Michaela has yet to be pushed though in this event. She owns a personal best of 55.10 in the 400 and 40.54 in the 300. When you combined that with her 2:57 1K speed you can really see why we think you cannot count her out.
Her workload will be heavy this weekend with Championships and EE events but if she gets in the right section and someone pushes the pace with her anything could happen. A 2:08 time out of the slower section could very well win the competition.
