I was there too , He looked 6 or 7 pounds heavier than last year , mostly in the butt and hamstrings . After racing 2 years without a break , including the finals of worlds , he probably took an extended break .
I was watching from home and after seeing Knight’s face, this what I thought. He looked out of place and exhausted. He had bags under his eyes and the Reebok muscle tee didn’t compliment his figure too much neither.
In the other hand, it seemed like the hype of the race may have just gotten too his head. A towering Kejelcha standing next to him might have been enough to give him the impression that the race was already won.
