One former Canadian athlete I was talking to at the meet said, “These athletes are just fu–ing mentally weak. If they don’t have a good time in the 100m, they just drop out of the 200m. How do they expect to run four solid rounds in the 100m or any other sprint?”
NumberTwo, you don’t know how right you are. I know a number of them and they’re all extremely talented. But when they either don’t win or when they are beaten by this particular individual or that particular individual they just fall apart. Sad to say but I see this bull crap ALL the time at meets here. :mad:
Also, a lot of these guys just want to run the 100m alone…I got a lot to learn but I would think until you start running 10.1’s you should not be looking to specialize. You should be keeping your options open. All those guys could very well be better at the 200 and maybe even the 400 if they’d be willing to give it a chance or man up and do the work, ie. Pierre, Anson, LaTouche, Dennison, King etc.
