    Great race! I'm excited to see what time Roberts can run with a clean race. He had to have lost close to a tenth of a second hitting those hurdles.

    One more thumbs down on show boating. Just my Barry Sanders mentality.

    O.J. Simpson never celebrated after his many NFL touchdowns either.
    And most of us thought that POS set a good example as well.
    Let the young man have fun and be himself. He sure as hell earned it.

    As the guy who was hyper-critical of Flournoy's behavior at the end of the 4x1 vs. Houston, I have no problem with this 'antic' by Holloway. He wasn't taunting or being mean-spirited; he was just having fun. As pointed out above, he then went over and congratulated Roberts.

    It went the way of the dinosaurs.

    Are either Roberts or Holloway planning to be at USATF? I’d assume both would want a shot at worlds.

    I would assume both will be. Pro contracts place value in your finish at USAs.

    Worlds seem likely too, assuming both make the team, since they have turned pro. I have a hard time imagining them running these kinds of times on October though.

    If all people care about is the acts after the race then they really shouldn't be watching.
    These two were sensational.

    Who knows what is going on...I remember, and you can see it on the video....Shorter completely ignores Virgin after the semi and the final in the 1976 Olympic Trials 10,000....and don't remember anyone commentating on it....

    And Rod Dixon hailing the heavens above after the 1983 NYC Marathon....with Geoff Smith lying on the ground behind him...and not once did Dixon ever turn around....all everyone said what a great picture....and I thought how ungracious....

    I missed that they had turned pro.
