It looks to me that the selectors have found a reason not to select him rather than trying to find an 'easier reason' to select him. A Standard and sub 1 min 45 without doubt, for me personally, means he deserves to be an Olympian regardless if he goes out in the first round.
I am so annoyed on his behalf. "Right performance at right time" - to be honest this only applies to a few of our athletes anyway. I would argue achieving an A standard at any time is something to be incredibly proud of. It is something that not all people in the team have achieved. I would argue that they haven't produced the right performance at any time.
Please god let some common sense prevail on this - it does come across, although clearly this is not the reason, that UKA are simply punishing hard working athletes for no reason. I have nothing against the sprinters but are you seriously telling me that a sub 1 min 45 800m is not on a par with the majority of these cases.
Whole point of athletics is that is was not a subjective sport but somehow it has now become so - people looking to make contraversial decisions when really it would have been easier to do the right think. Complete and utter joke!
