My theory has already been proven right.
But according to his retarded science he's actually at a disadvantage! If it weren't for those pesky springy things he has to use he would have shaved another 5 seconds off his world record time.
What a retard.
He could probably do the mile in 3:40 or something completely ridiculous.
I agree with the earlier post that the only reason he's trying to make it at the 400 and not the 800 is because it would be absurdly obvious at the longer distance and he would never be allowed in. On the 400 his somewhat reasonable times and his slow start almost make it look like it's fair...and evidently he can actually get some people to believe his springy things don't really help him.
