|Subject: ||RE: How Can Symmonds Medal? |
I'm sorry but Jock is not the only US 800 runner who can split 45.xx in a 4x4...Casimir loxsom splits 45.xx all the time, Jacob Hernandez splits 45.xx, Tevan Everette split 45.xx, I'm sure Abda splits 45.xx since he won big 10s in a 46 in the 400m indoors. Numerous US 800 runners split 45/46...Jock is the only one who goes out fast because he knows no other way of racing. It's worked well enough to get him to be one of the top in the NCAA, and a berth to the world championships. I don't think it will keep working on the international scene though. He was burnt out and didn't make it out of the prelim at worlds, good experience for him...but if you wan to talk about medals, he should have at least made it to the semi's. Maybe in 2016 we can talk of him being a medal threat, he'd be lucky to make the team this year and he'd be the next Tim Tebow/Jeremy Lin to make the 2012 Olympic final.
