RE: Who the hell is that Harvard guy?

Perhaps, but he may put the priority on his graduate education.

The way he performed today was exactly in line with his close second place finish in the Wisconsin Adidas meet, followed up by winning the remainder of his races up to NCAA's. Not really a surprise based on this season's performance.

He smart enough to know a few free shoes and living in an athlete runners slum with a below the poverty level wage is not the best way to use your Harvard education. He could make the world x-country team and have a nice trip somewhere.
He though falls smack dab in the middle of the short comings of USATF support of emerging athletes who are not good enough to get a shoe deal , but have the potential to do something but cannot gain support or tie into a national system that could develop them.
The next headline two years from now may read " what ever happened to the Harvard guy "
