Barringer Tries To Explain

Track and Field Videos on Flotrack


MY COMMENT: "It's not going to matter in the long run." A quote from the middle of this interview. Sounds to me that Barringer blames this on a build up of psychological pressure as opposed to a specific physical problem.

Not the same, but certainly brings back memories of Suzy Favor Hamilton's dive with 200 to go when she got passed in the 1500 meter Olympic final at Sydney. Years later she finally admitted the pressure of losing got to her and she fell on purpose: Then comes what she calls the toughest admission of her life: "I was thinking about everyone, how happy they would be. And at that moment I had let them all down, so falling was the option. And I fell."
