    He has to run much faster, much more agressive in the finals to place...He Won but he was very timid and too cautious... I am really enjoying the Olympics. So Glad Japan Prime Minister Didn't allow them to intimidate him in shutting it down...These are the Leaders the world needs .

      He ran smart and only needed to qualify. Smart to run to be first or second for auto. Both guys knew 3rd place was lagging so worked together to get through wisely. Clearly saving the best for last. His heat was trash so save the burners for the final. Really hoping for a medal but with the 4th best world time this year will really need his absolute best to clip dos Santos and maybe even shock the world.

      How about just saying congratulations and leaving the expert to plan his strategy?

    Why was he keep looking back?

      He was not looking back it's the posture of a trained athlete going over the hurdles. I looked at the clip and see no looking back. I never ceases to be amazed by such negativity.

    Congratulation to Kyron, Chantel and Ellianah. You have made the VI proud. My God continue to bless you all.

    Congratulations!
    Let us hope next week BVI will get its first medal(s) in the Olympics. It is within reach.
    Big respect to these great athletes!
    Let's hoe that these achievements will inspire the ones in (political) power, whatever party or group, to put more money in sports facilities for the ppl of BVI and less for useless consultancy contracts. This way you encourage ppl to live a better lifestyle and as a bonus some of them will make it to the top and the whole community will win in the end.
    For example, fix the pool at Prospect Reef so that the youth (and not only) of the island can learn swimming and some train for competition. Fix the Queen Elizabeth park, including the playground. Just having nice billboards about physical literacy hanging by the highway will not help have a healthier community or the next Philips , Malone or McMaster.

    It’s now or never. It time to show the world what we are made of. Leave nothing behind. Think of this as the last 400 meters hurdles you will ever run. We all know you have what it takes to win gold.
