      Kessler doesn’t make it to the finals. Going pro looks premature.

          So Hocker not having the standard means the final will be fast? Is his world ranking good enough if he gets top 3?

            Pretty surprising effort, especially considering how he looked yesterday. It wasnt that fast but he was never really in it.
            There are no strings on me

              As I was watching I was like why are you giving up positions and falling back to last - what the hell are you doing? A 3:34 guy comes in 11 seconds off his PB because he seems like he believes he does not belong and hopes he can make up ground even if you let others pass you. I don't get it!

                Could it be hard to run rounds as a pro for a high school kid?

                  I don’t agree. Going pro for him will mean a better training and racing schedule. It was a good move at the right time.

                    Hard for anyone so probably extra hard for a high schooler who just turned pro.

                      I agree.

                          having a first round in w400h was a joke!

                            Yeah… of course, he is 18. Perhaps, he will have a great career.

                              Except that we just found out that the can't-miss HS phenom couldn't handle the rounds in the 1500. I am more sure than ever that all the rounds are significant.

                                I don't think anyone thought he was a "can't-miss HS phenom". That still doesn't make the rounds make sense as if the reason he didn't cut it was 2 rounds vs three. I don't think the increased risk of injury or accident justifies it. To suggest that rounds weed out the weak is silly at this level. We've had many examples of very good runners done in by rounds that really would have been the best choice for the team. We've had people make it through the rounds only to fail in the rounds at the olympics/wc. Again, a good coach should be able to prepare the athletes for the rounds without needing a dress rehearsal at the trials. Plenty of other country's athletes and coaches do just that.
