  • What happened to Leo Manzano at Carson/ Adidas?

    Buried in the thread about the Carson/Adidas meet, Track Daddy and Dr. Jay wondered what happened to Leo Manzano in the 1500m. I see now that he finished way back in 3:57.55. Anybody know what happened?

      Thanks for asking the question ltr and for the answer RQ.

      I'm glad to hear that Leo wasnt injured.

      I guess that it was mental is a good thing.

      I'm sure he'll do much better next time out.

        He said the first lap may have been too fast and he began to fade back and broke down mentally.Said his training has been the best ever...so hope also that he can bounce back...I'm a Manzano fan...he's a fun runner to watch...very short and small, but can really kick!

          Let's hope it was just a bump in the road, but he's no novice so I'm wondering???

            Fellas I do not mean to drop elbows on our distance runners all the time but come on. I asked the same thing at the meet as I watched him 20 meters off the pack by the second lap. He says it was mental? This is a major meet, not some relay meet. the competition is top notch and he has a mental lapse one lap into it? Rankin ran 3;36 to win in Jamaica, and he was no where in contention of a race that was won in.... wait for it.... 3:36! Yes all races are different but we are talking competitive fire.
            What I see of our distance troops is time runs. Instead of competing we are watching time trials from them. So when tactics come into play they are at a loss. Yes, we have some promising runners and few good ones out there, but overall it is looking the same. And we should be more competitive out there, we clearly have the talent. Mental lapses causes tactical errors not 200m losses from one of our bright young talents.

                Rankin won, but in 3:46, not 3:36.
