Grant Fisher was the seventh U.S. prep to run a sub-4 minute Mile with a 3:59.38 clocking at the Nike Festival of Miles on June 4, 2015. He achieved the feat one month after fellow prep athlete Matthew Maton. Although Maton beat him to the punch, Fisher has been called the best high school Miler in years as he has more wins and was younger at 18 years, 44 days when he went sub-4 for the first time.

Fisher is also a two-time adidas Dream Mile champion, two-time Foot Locker Cross Country champion, two-time Gatorade Player of the year, two-time national Indoor Mile champion, and represented Team USA at the IAAF Junior Championships in 2014.

In June 2017, as a Stanford sophomore, Grant won the NCAA outdoor 5000m title in a tactical 14:35.60, blasting a sub-56 final lap for the win, and in November 2017, Fisher finished 5th at the NCAA Cross Country Championships, and in November 2018, he was NCAA Cross Country Championships runner-up. At Stanford, Grant was a 12-time All American.

FUN FACT: Fisher was a tremendous HS student, earning a 4.05 grade-point average and a 34 on the ACT, just two points away from a perfect score!
