Even better for him--only had to run 1:48+. Might actually have a chance as he seems to have gotten that compulsive front running out of his system. Saving energy this time (hope Manzano takes notice). Ran about as slow as he could possibly get away with.

Khadevis advances, only had to run 1:47 or so.
This happened to runners in the outside lane in at least two other heats. Not hearing the gun when they should for whatever reason.
was jock even ready to start? he looked like he didn't know it was time to start!

Front runners waste too much energy in the heats, because they don't know how fast they need to go, while kickers can hang back and use only as much energy as they need to.
Front runners run around with targets on their backs. KD seems to be figuring it out.
Now I've not run anything over 400m for a while, but is there ever a 'set' command in an 800m?
