he just shut down way before the line, and still finished in 20 secs, it will be extremely close.

Fucking hate it when they slow up to walking pace - it's hardly preserving that much energy by not putting it in 'til the finish. I'm all for a bit of arrogant swagger but when they give it up before the line I just want them to be overtaken by a some fast finishing Turkish athlete whose speciality is the fucking steeplechase. Run through the line you cocky cunt Evil

Agreed, especially when the next stage is the following day. I'm sure they can recover by then. But then again, why push yourself when you know you're going to qualify.

The photo finish for Blake was jokes too. 2 and 3 diving for the lane and 1 (blake) leaning back slowing right up. he only got it by .1 of a second too!

Pointless nowadays though innit? Even middle class Grandma knows what form an individual (especially the big names) is bringing into the competition given the media, internet and stat saturation.
