    When you are afraid, your legs feel died and tight.

    There has to be more to it. From the race, he looked relaxed, and not tight at all. Maybe he just isn't a round runner. Even his fast sixty was nonexistent.

    Thats my point he was scared of bolt and that made his legs feel died/heavy/tight which = poor finals.

    My legs died on me probably sums it up. Not able to do 4 tough rounds. It can't have helped that he had the surgery on the torn pec

    Do you think the mental issues came up in his head (his past history)?
