    Another interview same as before - Warm up was good, but felt a warning sign 60m into the race and had to make a choice and chose around 120m into the race to listen to his body and just jog it in. Same injury as what he had at USAs.

    regarding 4x4 "well see"

    Not too shabby, if you ask me
    Add the 800m gold and I'd even add Hoppel's 800m 4th to the list. And that's just on the men's side.

    Norman not making final is a HUGE disappointment. I will fess to that. Personally as well as professionally - I was really looking forward to the 400 final and a honkin' fast time. Been looking forward to it ever since Mt SAC!

    But otherwise, American are doing great overall. Period.

    Wilson wasn’t really a disappointment. She didn’t push the pace as fast as needed and got out kicked. At least she got a medal.

    Then why didn't he jog in his heat yesterday?

    How is the US doing versus the form charts? I agree with most posters that they are having a fine championships with 16 medals as of this morning. Does 30 still seem likely?

    He said he didnt feel it in his heat yesterday, but specifically felt something in the semis and chose to shut it down.
