CJ, I'm not really saying that letting him run his preferred running style would have made him more competitive, but, because he wasn't allowed to do that, we will never know what might have happened in the race had he run as most thought he would, early. We might have had the same winner (or not, because the complexion of the race might have been quite different, affecting the way others may have run the race, which might have affected the winner in all kinds of ways, traffic, etc.), and the other money positions might have been quite different.
