Agree with that. Brendan Foster in particular seemed over-eager to write him off as a marathon runner when by any objective criteria, a 2.08 debut is a stunning achievement !
Being the competitor he is (and it came across very strongly in his post-race interview with Jonathan Edwards) this is likely to spur him on to run even faster next time and the UK record at least is surely only a matter of time.
One very good thing that may result from today's race is that a wider public (not just distance running followers) will appreciate just what an outstanding runner Steve Jones was.
Mo is undeniably an all-time great and yet, in perfect conditions, he couldn't run as quickly as Steve Jones did nearly 30 years ago and without anywhere near as much "science" and support as today's elite have access to.
That's not to say Mo won't break the UK record one day (in fact it will be a major surprise if he doesn't) but it does highlight just how good Steve Jones was all those years ago.
