    You need to stop watching Prefontaine movies.

    Part of the problem is Symmonds is likely slower over 400m than most of the guys he races and isn't as well-equipped for a quick early pace. I'm a bit surprised he hasn't explored the 1500 more by this point.
    So since he's slower he waits to use his speed at the end? :?

    As a Canadian, I'd like for Gary Reed to get himself in a race without someone else who has run under 1:44 this season. This field was not at all competitive for him compared to what he's going to face in Berlin.

    The Polish federation requires it, at least in principle. I hope they show some common sense and select Kszczot even if he doesn't do it, coz he clearly deserves it, but... you never know.

    Become?

    Welcome to three years ago!
    LOL
    I guess i wasnt clear. Nick has shown he plans on using the same tactic he uses against the best in American against the best in the world. Lay back and kick. He doesnt have a gear to run the elite down and it's hard to watch. I'd rather see him go down swinging near the front then be hopeless boxed in the back of the pack.
    Reed was clearly the winner and that's all that counts!


    Oh let me have a teeny gloat -don't get the opportunity very often. ops:

    I am sure Squack doesn't mind.


    (in reality Symmonds and the other American 800m guys need to get out of their comfort zones in the US more often..and sooner).

    It took every one of Dwight's brain cells just to remember his password this morning. By the time he starts posting, there aren't any left.

    Great race Gary before Monaco. Watched the interview where you were all told of a rabbit the night.before. No matter to a great tactician. ( on the verge of shall I say? )

    Lewandowski has got it and Czapiewski got it late last season, I believe, when he beat Bungei in China...I think he ran around 1.44.9

    An Olympic gold medal would be a damn shame.

    But at least he showed up in a European meet!

    I'll be thrilled if he makes the WC final.
