Just watched the interview.
Dixon is obviously a super talent and has some monstrous speed to compliment that. After seeing him run 45.2 earlier this season, I was almost certain he would end up running under 1:44 this year. He looked very comfortable gong through in 51 yesterday, but I’m not sure what happened after that... maybe too much speed and not enough specific pace training. That aside, it was nice to see that he managed to finish modestly, even after taking the race out. His interview was even more enlightening and showed that this kid has a competitor and has a good head on his shoulders, not many people are able to be so objective immediately after an off race AND stay hungry for the next race after.
Best of luck to him, and hopefully we’ll see a 1:43 from him next year.
