I think what Harb may be referring to, though, is timing. Just a hair off in timing will result in a line change that will be visually observable through body motions that could be identified as being off-balance. In this respect, our Bode may have something to compete against. Bode can recover, that's why he can push. I'm willing to bet that Jon can recover too. And his lack of experience in the course is showing through his timing and his need to constantly recover. The guy is far from off balance.
However, he's not perfectly on balance because he's using his shin muscles to recover from being late. Or- whatever.
Jon will definetely make an impression. I hope to God he qualifies. And, in all reality, his goal is not that far-fetched. 2014 is a long ways away. And, the guy has the drive, amongst other things.
