I'm at the press conference and was told by someone associated with the meet that Makhloufi is running tomorrow in the 800.
He will not make it to the press conference but is running.
Even the article referenced here talks about him "continuing his season" in Stockholm
so perhaps it's just saying he's not running the 1500.
|What's the story?|
Why wouldn't you believe it? What is the big deal? A lot of Olympians are continuing their seasons in Europe, why would he be any different?
I hope he runs a 1:35 800m tomorrow, just to carry the absurdity to the extreme.
It might be helpful too if someone in the field can spike him hard through a vein. If people could watch his tar-blood ooze out it could lead to further investigation.
