    I have to believe with Norman being half Japanese, he would be in prime sponsorship position leading up to Tokyo. I hope this doesn’t hurt his earning potential.

    Michael Johnson on the BBC today said that he had learnt that Norman was struggling with an ongoing adductor injury and this appears to make sense because apparently it isn't something that leads to sudden intense pain like other injuries can. He didn't feel it during his first round.

    I think Roman Sebrle had a similar injury during the 2001 WC decathlon after he had broken the 9000 point barrier in Gotzis. I remember he struggled in the sprints and hurdles in particular.

    I believe the same injury tends to be called a groin strain in British soccer where it is quite a common cause of players missing games.

    Very impressive ... add Gardiner to the list of those who could eventually be the first runner under 43.
