    Good for him, but I thought he turned pro already. Maybe not, but I do remember him running in the Olympics this past year.

    The Olympics Track and Field is still considered an amateur event, which offers no prize money. So you can take part in the Olympics and still be eligible to run for a high school or college; however, Nellom received a final year of eligibility during his 6 yr of college for other reasons.
