Yeah but he has the Q next to his name so all is good. I'll wait til the next round before I start worrying about him. Wouldn't be surprised if he's past his peak though.
Didn't see the race but 3:55 doesn't sound like he went out hard.
when i say he went out hard I don't mean his time threw 800 was fast. for him... i'm speaking about in racing terms.
He lead the majority of the race somtimes by 5meters or so. and once it came to the kick he had nothing for them. he was trying. we have seen this legs getting tired. xc he was the man. now he is not. however he is young and will recover very well for the future of running. i hardly think he planed to get 4th in his heat. and be tenths of seconds from not even making the finals. look at the results. he almost didnt make the finals.
