This study was conducted to compare the lap time of high school boys' K-2 1000m final at the $99^{th}$ National Sports Festival with the lap time of the World Championship final held in 2018 and to find an optimal pacing strategy to enhance the performance. The high school boys' average final record was 242.89 seconds, and the top international's 199.58 seconds. There was 43 seconds difference in records and by lap-time it were 9, 12, 9, and 13 seconds behind every 250m. World Championship players used the Super Fast-Even Pacing-Even Pacing-Spurt strategy. The $1^{st}$ to $3^{rd}$ ranked high school boys used Slow-Fast-Super Slow-Super Fast strategy, and $4^{th}$ to $9^{th}$ ranked boys used Fast-Slow-Fast-Slow strategy. The high school boys need to modify their pacing strategies to achieve world-class performance.
