He has a routine. Shotput and the 1600 are up early, sometimes even overlapping. When he’s finished with those, he’ll get a sucker. The 800 is scheduled later and it’s his last event of the day. (When all his events are over, it’s not uncommon for another visit to the concession stand, usually for nachos.)
Once when he threw away his sucker stick, he ended up with small sucker residue on his jersey which left red spots. When he lined up for the 800, the official asked if it was blood on his jersey. Nate said no and then couldn’t resist adding “Oh, actually I killed someone." The official didn’t miss a beat. “If that was true, I’d have to disqualify you.”
