have yet to watch the interview with ches, but watching it live it looked like jenkins would have had it even without ches letting up.
that said, does anyone on this board know jenkins? not that it matters, but he seems a bit...well, unlikeable in my book every time he's interviewed. maybe it's just the oddly nasal new hampshire voice, but he just seems like kind of a turd.
but back to athletic ability, if the guy can close in 25.8, what is his top-end speed like? i know these are the best distance runners, but crazy that guys that never really seemed to be speedsters can close so fast. strength matters of course, but there is some very raw speed evident.
not sure if it's something about the strength training but oregon seems like the best place to develop a kick.
