RE: Official 2019 Herculis Monaco Diamond League Discussion Thread


I think he slowed because he was in poor position to set a PB. Getting the win became the important objective. I don't think he expected to get passed by Jakob and I don't think Jakob made a legal pass tbh. It was a good time to test his kick and control a race.

Looked like Tim intentionally slowed down after the pacer dropped, costing the whole field a shot at a fast time. Maybe wanted to test out his kick in preparation for Worlds, but it was strange to see after he was passing the pacer early.

I think he has a moral obligation not to mess up others' potential for fast times in the one race a year it's well set up for it, just so he can get one more DL win.
