    If by "quite a race" you mean Gatlin destroying his competition. Powell will be running for silver.

    Bolt doesn't "shut down" nearly as much as his legend suggests. And as the old adage says: "The light that shines twice as bright burns half as long." It should not be a surprise to anyone that...

    On a more serious note (I kid Zues): I would really like to see a couple things out of this meet. First, is Blake on a comeback, or washed up? Second: Bolt needs to run something, and do it...

    It's sort of hard to gauge the 200m performance, since no wind data from the curve is available (it could have been a cross-wind of 6m/s for all we know). So, the 100m is the more reliable in terms...

    When the LOTR movies were in pre-production, Lee expressed his great interest in playing Gandalf. He was a huge fan of Tolkien. Unfortunately, Peter Jackson didn't agree.

    Not sure about Jamaica, but Yohan Blake is the posterboy for Pan Ams. I was just in Toronto last week, and his face is everywhere. Will he even make the team?

    That qualifies him as the fastest "basic" Canadian in history. Both Bailey's and Surin's 9.84s adjust to about 9.89.

    But your point is meaningless for the 2015 season. Gatlin is now running better than his (former) "lifetime bests", and Bolt's new "worst" may likely be much worse than before. Until we see what he...

    The hot weather "helps," but it doesn't really HELP. Wind is and will always be the biggest factor. A 20C temperature difference (between 15 and 35 C) gives about a 0.02s differential. So, if it...

    De Grasse set a new Canadian 200m record this evening with a 20.03 (-0.1) qualifiying time at the PAC12! The next fastest qualifiying was 20.69 (+0.1). Look for an easy sub-20 in the finals.
