RE: Wheating - Would be have made the 1500 team?
I know what you're saying, and it may have been the best decision to skip it. But it seems like any race I've seen Wheating run this year he finishes with almost too much energy left over.
If anything his running style would have made it easier on him to get through rounds and into the final than everyone but lagat. Just sit in the back on the outside and kick up to the appropriate qualifying spot. His kick would have allowed him to be a sharp shooter off of 3:40-3:42 pace. But had he done it, and even if he had made the top 3 in the final, I do think that all of that racing at trials would take a toll.
Good decision not to. Be nice to see a 1500 in Europe, and I think Lananna likes to take his guys there if they are ready.
