I understand what he is doing, but it is still Bullshit. Let's say he holds out until next year to Go for the record. Tomorrow is not promised. What if he gets hurt or next year things aren't as great as this year. Not wishing any harm or bad will to the guy, but you have to strike while the iron is hot. Break the record and then go to Nike or whoever and renegotiate Or at least get under 47. Working on his 200 is fine and all, but he needs to run one more 400m hurdle race against Samba. Even if he loses, he will have experienced racing the guy and get ready for next year. I understand that running in the NCAA's and then racing on the international circuit is tough, but how many times do you get to break a WR?
