Considering that he finished the Michigan with a 50 second 400m last year, that claim that he lacks the explosive speed needed is not credible. He has a very smooth stride and the mindset to go with the pacers. I just got back from Europe and it was a definite adjustment the first couple weeks to the time change and the long airplane trips. Michigan's about 7 hours behind Europe. It would not surprise me to see him run some major pr's the next month.
