The lad has a big kick, the rest ran straight into his hands with such a slow early pace, but he certainly hasn't done anything out of the extraordinary tonight. Ran 3:34 which is around what he has been running for the last 4 years. Not sure that it's such a surprise other than he needed a doctor's note to get back into the final after the DQ from the 800m.I dont know much about the 1500m these days. But the commentary seem shocked, Seb Coe looks stunned, the crowd is very quiet.......has that man been in Ben Johnsons old locker?
My biggest issue is that the 800m & 1500m overlap in these games. Why, I've never known a track meet where these two clash. In the past the most of the runners ran in both so I can't understand the thinking in it!
