Solid run by Australia to qualify comfortably in the fifth fastest time. Joel Milburn will come in and the team should run sub 3-04. That should be good enough for a medal, but what colour is hard to say. Again some countries rested athletes so it's still a very open race. Wroe, Milburn & Offereins all ran the individual and should run the final, although Offereins looked a little lethargic in the heat and lost some ground. But hard to see him missing after he ran 46.00 in the individual final. Not much between Cole & Moore as both ran pretty well in the heat.

There's some things in sport that simply can't be measured with statistical data. One of those is an athlete's capacity to rise to the occasion; the mindset needed to demonstate incredible guts and determination, taking an athlete with a modest record or history to levels that defy his 'history'.

An example of this is St Kilda's Lenny Hayes. On pure facts and figures of the 2010 season, Lenny was always going to struggle to get a place in this season's All Australian team among the elite mid fielders. But something Champion data could not measure was Hayes' ability to go to that extra level when his team needed him. He virtually willed St Kilda across the line several times this season, in a way that defied the raw stats. His performance in the drawn Grand Final epitomised the courage and tenacity Hayes had shown many times through the season.

Another example was shown in the men's 4 x 400m. Brendan Cole has a modest 400m PB of 47.5 and rarely runs the flat 400m. I was critical of his elevation to the 4 x 400m relay team as I felt he should have some flat 400's to justify selection. I copped a serve (deservedly) from his coach MattyB recently when I suggested BJ was in the 4 x 400m team on false pretences.

Shit was I wrong.

Cole's run in the 3rd leg of the relay was simply unbelievable. After watching the final last night I replayed the 3rd leg three times to appreciate the enormity of what Cole did. It was one of the gutsiest relay runs I've seen. He isn't a great technician and looked to be taking shorter steps than those behind him as he bullocked down the straight, but he just wanted desperately to get to the line first to give Sean Wroe a chance at gold. And he did.

It reminded me of Mark Ormrod's exhilarating relay leg in the 2004 Athens Olympic final that set up the silver bullets for a memorable silver medal.

In my view, Cole's was the run of the race and BJ now has a well deserved gold medal from the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

Kevin Moore - what a find he's been and is a feather in the cap of the NSWIS Fast Track Program. Great run and at 19; what a future, Moore has.

Sean Wroe anchored the team beautifully while Joel Milburn got them off to a solid start. Consumate professionals these guys and continue to maintain a standard that has other 400m runners desperate to attain.

To think Australia won without Tristan Thomas, Ben Offereins and John Steffenson - who all ran in the World champs bronze medal team in 2009. Goes to show great depth.

Congrats must go to the team managers and relay coaches for thinking long and hard about the final make up of the team. It worked brilliantly.

Well worth staying up to 1.30am to watch the final and several replays.

Finally - the post event celebration of the mock cricket game was fantastic and very entertaining; and hopefully the guys have started a tradition that 4 x 400m teams do after future gold medals.

Youngy,
Appreciate the kind words. I can assure you I was an extremely proud coach watching BJ run in that final. BJ takes great pride in running for his country and when the opportunity arises he gives his all even with a very sore toe.

Hope all is well and thank you for taking on board my comments.

MattyB

No worries Matt,

Must give credit when credit's due. BJ's run will live long in the memory of those who were privelged to watch it. I can't imagine what it must have been like to be at the stadium to see the 4 x 400m. Would have been sensational.

A pity we can't take what Cole has (in abundance), put it in a bottle and offer it to athletes who have the natural talent but don't have the guts, determination nor the capacity to handle adversity. If we could we'd have a a production line of champions.

Well done to you and BJ - another feather in your cap.
