    How is that a choke when McPherson (sub-50) had a faster time than Williams-Mills going into the Final?

    I think she was a co-favorite, but primarily based on her early-season string of victories. Lately, others have been out-preforming her on the circuit, especially the top Americans.

Have you got any thoughts?' 'I didnít even know that. I'm sorry,' Bolt laughed."

    LOL!
    I could not find the entire PC on video (only parts of it) but I did see the article yesterday and the photos with reactions/expressions Bolt had in response to the inane questions-hilarious!

    Unless I missed it, nobody mentioned the W10000m, which was a really entertaining race, went down to the wire between the Kenyans. I won't ruin it and tell you who won if you haven't seen it yet. definitely worth a watch.

    Agree -- very entertaining stuff -- great racing!

This might have been a better move for the off-season but maybe it will work out well for him.
    It doesn't appear to have done Wruck huge favours. Only managed 59.02 in qualifying. Will probably still get through as he was 4th in his pool.

    Glad to see Amos is not appearing to be a flash in the pan, like he might have a long term high quality career.

    Rudisha's still short on races isn't he? I think this might be about his third meet for this season. He might be ready to get closer to previous form (though not peak of course) in the next 3 or so weeks?

    It was his seventh race and fifth final this year. He's actually leading the Diamond Race ahead of Amos. True, his performances in two of those five meetings were pretty forgettable *smiley face*

    Okay, thanks. I looked it up on the IAAF list but only found 3 or 4 races but obviously did not look down the list enough.
