  • Churandy Martina's place in history

    great line from UTEP's Bob Ktichens, who still coaches Martina (and understands the reality of life apparently):

    <<"He ran a terrific race and you can't take that away. He ran unbelievably. He moved up another notch. He was a good sprinter, now he's on the verge of being a great sprinter. It makes a different perception on things. You think differently now.

    "But Usain Bolt is still out there. Churandy might be the next Frankie Fredericks.">>

    There are a lot worse things to be than the next Frankie Fredericks.

        Why should he go back to that ? Obviously 9.93/19.82 is what he is capable of doing in peak form, but he is only 24 and has improved constantly the last few years.

          his natural habitat is 10.1/20.2

          he ventured out of it to this meet, is likely to have got very "homesick" for his ole stomping ground & likely to return there permanently

            hardly a great line, in fact as coaching comments go, call it underwhelming. Kitchens could learn something about promoting your athletes. Let me say that Martina is and was even last year every bit a great sprinter.
            ... nothing really ever changes my friend, new lines for old, new lines for old.

              My sentiments exactly. There is just no going around the fact that it takes atleast the lowest range of greatness to reach the WC and finish fourth in a sprint.
