Simply conjecture. I did prefix my comment with "perhaps". Not sure otherwise why he would have dropped out of the competition.


Yes, you did say "perhaps," but the ambiguity was whether "perhaps" referred to an injury or to the reason for retiring early.


It turns out the he did take one attempt at 2.33. We were getting no help from the announcing crew and the on field scoreboards weren't always correct or spun around by the attendant. What happened was that he missed twice at 2.30 and once at 2.33. FloTrack has video.

Wouldn't do that much good unless your watch was synced with the frame rate.

Huh? Maybe I'm being dense here, but isn't the frame-rate irrelevant if you're just timing the video play-back?! It's in 'real-time'.


What no one has done is watch the video and time it, so I did. He took the baton about 3 meters before the finish line and threw the baton down in disgust a meter or so prior to finishing the race so technically he would have been DNFed. At any rate, I assumed that he really held the baton and timed the 400 meters at 44.5. He came through the 200 at 21.6.

Has Jeremy admitted to intentionally throwing down the baton? Looked to me like he brushed arms with Summers.

Could be, but it looked like an act of frustration live, though he might have really intended to throw it down after he crossed the finish line. For whatever reason, the official results don't show a DQ and they show an anchor of 44.72, which probably represents that he ran around 403 meters since he took the pass a bit early in the zone.

If the official results show a time of 44.72, that's 400m, not 403. The camera shows the baton as it crosses the line, not whenever he receives it.

Thanks, Marlow. Wasn't sure how that worked with the official timing.

The meet was on the Longhorn Network so Flotrack would need to access the rights to the video.

Looked like the baton slipped out of his hand. He didn't throw it, which was my initial reaction. I also agree he had no split because he didn't finish the leg.

Here's the two main men's 4x4 videos... also, looks like freshman Arman Hall ran a pretty nice split, mid-45 for his leg...
