    Thanks for the video WL.

    I worry about him being at Georgia with the head coach using him for points.
    Long jumper Kate Hall jumped farther in High School than her time at georgia and has since bettered her best Georgia jump, though not better than her high school best. She has posted about Georgia being a waste and how parasite college head coaches misuse and over work stars in selfishness.

    It was horrible that the Georgia football scum coaches had him run the final leg in the coaches vs. Players relay run. Matt did run down the player and it looked like a toddler running against a teenager. The toddler is named Richard Lecounte, a joke of an athlete, who is projected to go really high in the 2021 nfl draft.

    I agree somewhat that Boiling was foolish for competing in the Football relay race at Georgia. He is what I call a long and lean sprinter, just needs to continue to progress at a natural rate, not much need for power weight training here. If I was his coach I would continue with the training regimen he had in HS as it did him well. I would also restrict or eliminate the LJ from his event list. Far too hard on the hamstrings for a sprinter.

    Boling like Lemaitre was born as a natural sprinter. He is so athletically gifted. Off the charts fast twitch fibers. While Lemaitre had career bests of 9.92 and 19.80 we shall see Boling take it to another level. I have been a big Christophe Lemaitre Fan but like many other fans lost interest. He was not hungry to be the best. As great as Lemaitre was, he could have acheived so much more. I put Guliyev above him for his career. This is where Matthew Boling will be special. The kid is as hungry as a lion who hasn't eaten in a very long time. The kid despite his success has stayed humble, determined and focused. Watch and see what the future shall be. The kid works as hard as anyone on and off the track. I see a true superstar of US Sprinting in the coming years. Keep training and working hard Matthew. The work will pay off huge down the road. Everyone will know your name! :)

    I wish someone would tell him to wear a weight belt and knee wraps. He also should never lift alone. I just don't want him hurting himself. What a loss that would be for the track world.

    I think it's great that he is hitting the weights. Lemaitre could not have lifted half that in his prime. Boling will obliterate Lemaitre's PBs.
