    Can't throwers excel in more than one event?
    Can't multi-athletes also excel in individual events?

    I am not suggesting they are easy. But excelling...

    Yeah, that final might have been ideal for Symmonds ... of 2013.

    ^This. Unless she wins a global medal in 100m, it's hard to argue she is more versatile than Szewinska. And I am a bigger fan of Felix than Szewinska, although I like both of them.

    Given Simpson had about a second over Hassan at 800m (after running 700-800 with a loose shoe), I am not so sure that she would have been passed. She never broke 2:00 in 800m, but Hassan's PB is only...

    Huddle made the same mistake at USA xc in 2012, and lost the title to Sara Hall. Too bad she did not learn from that experience. (At least she did not have a jumbo screen to look at in a xc race.)

    I think he would have relented if he had a realistic chance to win a medal. But with those nine (plus Bosse), he might not even made the final. This was a perfect timing to pick a fight. Both Brooks...
