I wish him best of luck, especially that he came so close to winning it at the last Olympics.
"He is a bear of a man: 6-foot-4, 345 pounds of speed and muscle, as imposing a physical specimen as one can imagine."
KaeJS might be interested in his diet.
“I need anywhere from 6,500 to 9,000 calories [per day]. It’s up there. But it’s easy to eat a lot of calories. I like a lot of salmon. Obviously, beef and chicken. I’m on a high-protein, low-carb diet. I’ll eat five or six times a day. I’m more of a grazer. I try to eat healthy. It does help performance.”
Continuing with Canadian content, I must say that I was disappointed that neither Felicien nor Lopes-Schliep qualified to race at the Olympics. Felicien was disqualified for a false start, hmmm, seems that new rules disqualify you at the 1st false start [no more 2nd chances???], and I don't agree with that at all; 4 years of intense training for nothing? These are trials after all, there are nerves involved, etc.
Donald: thanks for the explanation, I didn't know any of what you explained, so now it all makes more sense. I'm not familiar with the sport, but even if I don't play/watch the sport, it doesn't mean that I won't read, so keep your comments coming!
