RE: Results from Luzern

Symmonds looks more economical coming from the back of the pack. I know people on here complain about that tactic all of the time, but that seems to be how he runs best (unless, of course, he is clearly the class of the field). He has a hard time making the "penultimate kick" that demoralizes his competitors at 500m when he goes out too quickly.

I know that's how Symmonds works best, but in this field it wasn't really possible. The Brazilian was the only elite competition and if Symmonds hung back from him, he would have been right in the thick of the crowd, could have gotten himself boxed in or been forced to run wide the whole race. He did what he needed to do during this race except for the last 70m or so.
