Like I said, Wheating would have to have been capable of running 3:35 in the final to make the top 3. And, forget about the fact that he had a faster SB than some of those guys, Pros have a difference competition cycle than the NCAA. Most of those guys had been training for just that one race.[/quote]
True, but my point is that wheating pr'd in the 800 at ncaa's and then again at the trials. He is still getting faster at this point. Before he ran 3:38 he ran a 1:47.xx and after he ran it he ran a 1:46.8. So his 3:38 was in the middle and it was capable of being faster. http://www.runnerspace.com/eprofile.php?do=videos&pg=1&event_id=17&video_id=3833
He is now at 1.45.0 from lane 2 the entire way. My guess is his 1500 has come around. Not saying he would stomp the world at the olympics, i just think he could do as well as leo or lopez, probably better since kicking is key to advancing.
