Mike, cant believe you made comment before reading the weblink above your response. Let me share the salient points:…
Haha. I didn't read it. I actually don't think the comments about WD are totally off base, especially considering when it was likely written. He is undoubtedly one of the more talented individuals to ever compete in the event (maybe the sport?). His raw talent plus the world-class biomotor development from Boo have made him a speed-power beast.
His technical issues have cleaned up considerably since that was written and much of this is due to the coaching of the best TJ coach in the world. Many of his technical issues were related to nagging injuries. Also, I think it's important to note that the faster one is moving the harder it is to make technical corrections. So while WD, Rusan, and Phillips all have tremendous speed they have all been haunted by technical issues at some point in their career.
