Here's something to think about: the 800 may be his second-best event when all is said and done.
I don't think so, his 400 speed is mid 45 for a split, points towards a guy whose muscle fiber type distribution will likely be more of a factor in the 800. Also he just ran 1:42, but couldn't make the 1500 standard.[/quote]
This is the big question. He obviously hasn't run near his 15 potential due to a) poor races in the lead-up to OTs and b) peaking. Remember he PRd in the 800 at OTs and twice here. He definitely has the OQ in him for 15 and would have been a factor at OTs had he raced it--I wouldn't count out him kicking down Leo and Blankenship for the third spot...
The sub-1:43 puts him in a different category 800-wise, he'd have to run what, 3:30-31? Sub-3:30? as a 15 equivalent. Regardless, his style of racing is perfect for both and he should be a threat for a while.
