    This is only his second victory of the season. His other one in Eugene was three months ago.

      Third actually...he won in Brussels two days ago as well.

        Well aware of that - so I exaggerate a bit :roll:

        But for someone who has won three big international races, it is still shocking that he finished 10th in his WCh semi. Likewise in 2005 - he didn't even make it out of the WCh heats when he was in even better form than he is in 2007!

          Fair enough, he bombed out in Helsinki but he fell in the home straight in Osaka, which wasn't his fault.

            He was out of it before then - okay, he may have scraped through, but the point is his form at outdoor championships (he was the slowest qualifier in the heats) is always a far cry from the kind of form he shows on the circuit.

              The pacemakers didn't do a stellar job today, but it's also not the right time for personal bests after Osaka.
