    As usual, you inevitably introduce intangibles like the above to make your case. What is an "average start"? How do you quantify it? How does it impact his acceleration? What result does this...

    Who cares what the time is with a 2.0 wind. In London, Bolt ran 9.87 (-1.2), which is 9.80 basic. In Beijing, he ran 9.79 (-0.5) = 9.76. BOTH effectively high-9.7. Rodgers was only 0.05s behind...

    Read and heed this. Once again, you come in to an argument with "proof by made-up numbers" (ignoring the opinion of a professional biomechanist in the process, I might add). I will again make this...

    A much older eye-opener was when France set the WR of 37.79s in 1990 with no sub-10 runners.

    Dafne is only 23 years old and her first year on the circuit as a dedicated sprinter. Can you imagine how much faster she will get over the next few years.

    Exactly. And thanks for the diagram -- that's pretty detailed.

    As you can see, the lanes off the curve don't actually join the straight until well past the 100m start line (about 14m).

    No. On a standard track, the curve+straight splits as something like 114m+86m.

    Schippers has an unparalleled speed endurance. It was evident in the 100m where she almost won, and most certainly visible in that 200m. Incredible race!

    Wayne Gretzky.

    That being said, what does "better than Bolt" even mean across sports? If you want a serious answer to this (ridiculous) question, you need to define your terms.

    That's awesome -- like watching them through a window. Unfortunately, Universal Sports in the US is strictly low-def, for whatever reason.

    This becomes an issue of instrument accuracy. Below some interval, you can't reliably differentiate placement from the photo finish. That's likely why we have two Bronze medalists in the 100m, but...

    The question wasn't "Who will break Bolt's records next year?". It was "Will anyone be able to challenge Bolt next year?" My view is that De Grasse is a raw talent unlike any seen in a while. Two...

    Andre De Grasse!

    Great run by Bolt. He put it together when it counted. Gatlin unfortunately burned himself out from the season, I think.

    Bolt in top form would blow by them at 30m. Unfortunately, Bolt here isn't in top form. The assistance will help, but with Gatlin on the inside will hunt him down quickly. I wonder, though, what...

    I am not a "Gatlin fanatic," I simply saw who probabilistically was likely to win. And in truth, a 0.01s victory is far, far from decisive -- it's random noise, and random noise caused by such...

    Another thought occurred to me, in re: De Grasse. His 9.75w from NCAAs converts to a 9.87s. His Beijing run is about 9.89. That's some excellent consistency (and speaks to the controversy that...

    De Grasse is not entered in the 200m. I originally thought it would be the easier medal opportunity for him, but I was pleasantly surprised. The next time he'll be on the track will be for the 4x1.

    It's also fun to note that their reactions times are separated by only 0.001s:

    Bromell: 0.135s
    De Grasse: 0.136s

    They effectively ran IDENTICAL races. It would be interesting to see their...

    Yes, I was surprised to see Gatlin so close to the pack once they were out of the blocks. It was completely unlike his other races this season. Bolt, on the other hand, got a tremendous start and...

    I can say this because the guy has been out of running for over a year, struggles with injury, has very few practice races, and then slams a 9.79 as his season best. Ergo, Bolt is at best a 9.7...
