I am happy for Lemaitre getting the silver. He will go down in history as one of the greatest European sprinters ever now that he has 2 gold medals and 1 silver medal in the 100m at the European Championships. But he missed an easy opportunity here. The old Lemaitre would have won the gold medal. The field was relatively weak - no Vicaut, no Gemili, no Ujah. He really should have won the gold medal. On the one hand, you can say, yes it's great he got the silver medal. But on the other hand, with his talent and the weak field, he really should have been able to win the gold medal. You can see that he knew that as well from his reaction after the race. It's interesting that both this year and last year Lemaitre had relatively poor seasons, then finally pulled it together for a good performance at the Championships - last year at the World Championships and this year today at the European Championships. Why can't he run well all year?! I am really wondering now if he isn't training as hard as he should and then weeks before a championship he finally puts in the necessary training to pick up his performances. I guess I will always have a happy and disappointing relationship with Lemaitre. I'm happy with him because he is the best white sprinter in the world. But I'm also disappointed with him because I know he can be so much better.
