But he's just a slob who has let his career stagnate.
Do you remember the hype about him 5 year ago?
I think it's beyond stagnation now and he's just past his prime. Atlas was terrible for him. He didn't need a huge motivation speech he was a 28/29 year old gold medallist who'd just beaten Byrd and Chambers, both by pouring on the volume down the stretch. If he wasn't ready then he was never going to be ready because now he's fatter, slower and older.
What a waste.
