I kid you not repost wrote:
100 meters to go, German got his shoe stepped on. A "flat tire". Crossed the line and slid the back of the heel back on. It did seem like he gave up... You can still run hard... Shoe comes off... It comes off, ya know. There was only 100 meters left in the race.
I'm trackside, so there it is.
Also, Dave Smith is cussing up a storm, and touching himself.
german needs to learn to tie his shoes. Its not hard. How would you like to train hard week in and week out, exhausting yourself, giving so much up only to be foiled by a shoe. He needs a different pair or something if the way he likes to tie them won't keep the ones he uses on. I'm sure coach smith could find him something that works that stays on his foot, or maybe teach him a new shoe tying style. It really worries me for future Ok state runners if the coach can't even get his runners to run races without their shoes coming off, thats like distance running 101. Maybe Smith should move down to coaching middle school.
