It is an iteresting thought – Hall looked like a stud at the OT, but it was a very slow start and he dictated the pace in the mid and late race. At London there will be guys cranking from mile #1, their will be all sorts of strategic surges mid and late race. Last year at London Hall was a player until near the end when he just didn't have enough to hang.
This year he says he is faster and more fit. I think he could go low 2:06 if he ran his own race, but this is London and he will be racing with the big dogs and not running his own pace.
I still think he can crack 2:07, if it is a good weather day. Finishing somewhere between 4-6th place.
Its gonna be fun!
