Kitajima needs to psych Dale Oen out, he thinks


Interesting comment here on … $1 million dollar bonus to Kitajima or not, I’m afraid that I’m still rooting for Alex :-)

One of Kitajima’s biggest rivals for the gold medal will be Norway’s Alexander Dale Oen, who won the 100m at last year’s world championships when Kitajima finished fourth.

“If it comes down to me and Dale Oen, I’ve got to find a way to get in his head,” Kitajima said of his Scandinavian rival according to Kyodo news agency.

At Beijing, the Norwegian came second behind Kitajima.

“It’ll be difficult because he’s mentally tough. But I like to think my time at the championships caught his attention.”
