Everyone Ready For The "Twilight Zone"?
“In the final it’s going to go out more aggressive than that. I think I’m going to take it to a place where the only person who has been there is Nick … Coach Gray calls it the Twilight Zone. I’m going to go under 50 seconds the first lap and probably be under world record pace at the 600.
It’s just a way you can break the field. If they try and go with me they are going to break down … If I tie up at that pace I’m not going to tie up a lot. I’ve done a 700 going world record pace, not tying up at all.”
– American Duane Solomon, who has regained much of his old form after not having finished an open 800 all year before USAs, on his plans for Sunday’s final.
