Yes. He is fine. He ran 3:30 11 months ago and was out for a couple weeks. How much fitness do you really think he could lose from that? He will win the trials but will not me a medal contender, which was expected.

Yeah, he liked REALLY bad. Wow, I'm shocked. To go with their pitiful 8 performance, the OTC: mead sucks it up, o'lionaird dnf, McNamara with late kick for his usual 3:38- only he didn't have anyone to stare down this time- Murphy was too far ahead.
Not his best day for sure, but I think it's a little early to be writing him off from that top three for sure. A bunch of pros who were calling this an A-standard chase came up short too. If Murphy runs the trials at 1500m you have to think this performance makes him even more of a favorite for a spot on the team, assuming he does in fact manage to hit the standard.

I give the guy credit. He's not afraid of what the judgmental losers who say he's done will think of him finishing mid-pack in two races. A lot of pros wouldn't have the guts to do that. Says a lot about him. This was a solid workout. I have faith he'll be a contender in Rio!!
