I don't think "Rojo's a genius" was responding to you, Montesquieu. He just replied to your comment because it was the last one in the thread. Hopefully all Letsrunners are familiar Larry Rawson's infamous "go down to the high school track" remarks.
Anyways, my 2 cents, regarding Rojo's post: A WR miss of .01 certainly makes you wonder what he could have done different to make up that tiny fraction of a second, but staying in lane one probably wouldn't have done it. Based on the Pythagorean theorem, the extra distance he covered was miniscule (less than the 2.78 inches Rojo proposed), and likely a non-factor. Also, no need to call out Salazar. I'm sure he has conveyed this very basic racing principal to his athletes.
