If the Algerian runner had stayed disqualified. If a fellow American hadn't surged past him near the finish line. If he had run .05 of a second faster. Matthew Centrowitz almost medaled in the 1,500-meter race here Tuesday night, but for several might-have-beens. But the 22-year-old graduate of Broadneck High School in Annapolis doesn't play that game, and is accepting the heartbreaker of a finish in his first Olympic Games. "What I'm trying to swallow now is not a good feeling," the dejected Centrowitz said.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY Runner of the Year Matthew Centrowitz Broadneck A sinus infection was the only thing that slowed Centrowitz in a remarkable season for the junior, who took the cross country scene by storm last fall. The respiratory problem contributed to Centrowitz's third-place outing in the elite division at Bull Run, but he refused to use it as an excuse. Instead, he channeled that defeat into motivation for the postseason, which he swept for the second year in a row. Centrowitz took home top honors at the Anne Arundel County, Class 4A East regional and state championships.

Like many of the other 1,500-meter races during his outdoor track season at Oregon this spring, rising senior Matthew Centrowitz felt someone pull up on his shoulder shortly after the final turn. And like all the other races, the 21-year-old Centrowitz had a response - an explosive kick that wasn't matched. But this time, it was two-time Olympic medalist Bernard Lagat providing the push. And this time, it was at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. That's the kind of company the former Broadneck standout is thriving against in his breakthrough year.
