I was rooting for him, but thought he should have been DQd for the right arm shove in the last few meters. He does seem like a nervous racer with all the looks and quick moves in traffic. He is a very talented runner.
WCAP - You can dislike the program, but he is just a person making the most of an opportunity available to him. He has chosen to gain citizenship to the US via serving in the US Military. This is a bigger service to our country than most citizens ever give and it comes with some serious possible down sides. There were other paths for this and they were probably easier and involved less risk. He is honoring his commitment to the US.
