Head case, Pressure turns up and he can’t hang. He gave up plain and simple. He will never race a competitive 800 ever again. This race ended his career. Move on and go incognito. He will have to live with this for the rest of his life. And that’s a killer !
I doubt it, but yes head case definitely. He wasn’t in amazing shape but she really should have made this team. He will come back and will probably win some DL meets and run some absorb times but he will have to deal with compounded psychological blows from back to back olympics. The pressure he will put on himself at the next trials will be unreal.
