Centrowitz Sets Personal Best in Swiss Race

The Arnold star runner came in third in a post-Olympics international race.

Arnold's track-and-field sensation Matthew Centrowitz set a new personal record for the 1,500 meter race while in Switzerland this week.

While running in the Diamond League race in Lausanne, Switzerland, Centrowitz shaved a solid 2.5 seconds off of his 3:34.46 personal best record to come in at 3:31.96. 

In a video interview, he told Flo Track that, "I still have a lot of racing left in me. I want to finish off this season with some more (personal bests)."

Centrowitz ran in the finals for the 2012 Olympic Games, but was just from a bronze medal finish.

In the video, he also addressed his fourth-place finish.

"Obviously that hurt really bad, just to be so close, you know. But I think me running as fast as this shows i'm in good shape," he told Flo Track.
