Do you not remember what the weather was like for the final? If so, do you think it's reasonable to expect Manning to PR under those conditions? The history of the hurdles and the technical nature of the event suggests that Manning is still five to ten years away from running her best times, and you really expected her to finish ahead of the eventual Olympic 2nd, 3rd and 4th place finishers, all whom are seasoned veterans? Come on man!
