Luis Peralta on Dominican 800m Championship

Tags: Interview 800m

We caught up with Luis Peralta of Passaic HS Sunday afternoon to talk about his exciting week which involved winning the Dominican National Championship in the 800m. The junior won the event with a big PR of 1:50.62, dropping four seconds from a year ago and US#1 so far this season. This was after opening his season the week before in California where he ran a 4:16.62 for the mile run during the Arcadia Invitational, he doubled back to run a 1:59 that meet after getting boxed in in the 800m. 

In the interview we discus when this trip was planned, his experience during this opportunity, how focusing on more distance has helped his 800m game, and his goals moving forward with so much season still ahead.
