Quote Of The Day
“Since USAs I’ve been a walking zombie so I was a little worried about today. … I didn’t really have the heart in me to give it my 100% which is a little sad. But pretty good to feel that good running [13:06] after such a terrible week. … In the last 100 I definitely didn’t kick as hard as I could have.”
“… All this year no one is really closing any faster than 54s and that is something I can do. … I think I can be there with 600 to go and if I’m there with 600 to go it’s anybody’s game. That’s the way I see it. I haven’t been wowed by any of those other guys …”
– Ben True talking after running 13:06.15 to finish 3rd in the Heusden 5,000 and punch his ticket to Worlds. It definitely bodes well for True if he’s finishing less than a second behind Olympic silver medalist Dejen Gebremskel and running the second-fastest time of his career on a day he isn’t 100%.
