RE: Clayton Murphy Better than Nick Symmonds in 1 RACE!!!
Don't put it in the passive voice: it's not as if he had little to do with it. He ran an almost perfect race: just one glitch when he tried to slip between two guys at about 580. Otherwise everything was very smart: going out fast; tucking in immediately on the rail; holding off the Polish runner (yes, I don't want to look up how to spell his name) at about 600; passing Berian on the inside; not panicking and running relaxed. So many mistakes he could have made, but he didn't.

Nick could never do what Murphy just did... the world will move on from the irrelevant white-boy Nick Symmonds.

Thankfully.


Um. Nick did run 1;42.95 at the 2012 Olympic final.That's .02 slower than what Murphy ran today. So tosay he could never do it that isn't accurate.

The race played out perfectly for Murphy. Bosse and the young Kenyan went for gold and it cost them a medal, made it easier for Murphy.[/quote]
