Jeremy Wariner LOSES?

0

Amidst all the hype surrounding Usain Bolt’s 100m world record, many overlooked a result from this past weekend that is perhaps just as, if not more, surprising. Jeremy Wariner LOST. I didn’t think he could do that. The man’s been a machine for the past 4 years. In fact, I think the last race he lost was in 2005 (not including one in which he DNF’d). His time was still great: 44.07 but he didn’t have his signature strength in the stretch. Is it related to his recent coaching change? Or maybe it’s just the natural development of the ultra-talented LaShawn Merritt? Who knows? There’s still 2 months until the Olympics and I’m sure much will change but whatever the case, it’s nice to see that the 400m is a competitive event again rather than a bunch of guys running for 2nd. Take a look at the video judge for yourself:
