Quote Of The Day
“I credit being at the University of Oregon and going to college for four years as the reason why I can run these tactical races, why I’m prepared for these slow races … I don’t think anyone in that race (the Rio 1,500m final), especially from Africa, had ever been in a 3:50 1,500-meter race in their life. A tactical race for those guys is 3:39, 3:40 … I think it’s messing with them more mentally than obviously physically … I’ve run plenty of 3:50 races. I know how to navigate that kind of field when it goes that slow.”
