Are you kidding me?

He's run twice now and both times the races have not been televised. I'm biased, of course, but my interest in the triple jump and pole vault pale in comparison to my interest in, say, the 800 meters (or any distance run). But, checking the results again this morning, Jacob ran the first heat of the semi-finals and placed fourth, thus qualifying for the finals in the 800 meter Olympic Trials. His time was slower than the quarterfinals, but even a world record holder (Tim Montgomery) or defending Olympic Champion (Marion Jones) has to place high enough in the finals to make the team. Jones and Montgomery did not. Here's hoping that Koczman can. Here's hoping that the 800 meter finals will be televised.
