    Perhaps not where the credit is due (and I do think it's a very sensible solution myself).

    Tokyo officials are not happy with IOC presenting the move as a done deal and seem prepared to lobby...

    ##2,6,9,10 in the event won 4x4 gold in 2:56.69, a time that has only been bettered (slightly) by one other nation.

    GB ran 2:56.60 at Atlanta '96 and 2:56.65 at WC following year.

    I should have been more clear. DB didn't have to face Amos at WC.

    Yes, DB did run Amos down at the line in Zurich when DB ran even splits and Amos ran 48/54. Amos would still have been favorite...

    Very true but with Doha in rear view and looking forward, I'd say all fourteen golds are plausibly capable of being defended. None were flukes or achieved by athletes at the end of their careers.

    14 golds ties with 05 Helsinki and 07 Osaka for most ever at WC.

    It is also more than at any Olympics since 84 L.A. when it was 16.

    16 is the record since 1904 and has been done a few times.

    At least Torrence was displaced from medaling by the people she complained about. And then went on to win an individual gold.

    Muir finished fifth and is going home with deserved zip. So, really,...

    Trayvon Bromell, bronze at Beijing 2015. Injury plagued. No 100m time in 2018, best of 10.54 this year.

    Wouldn't count on it.

    London's 44.5 even more impressive considering the stumble at the beginning of the leg.

    She tried the 800m at Rio and didn't get out of the first heat with a 2:00.

    On a re-watch of Rodgers/Gillespie, my take.

    Rodgers has made up the stagger on GB as he and Kilty are approaching the exchange zone.

    Both anchors leave early.

    Rodgers does then take some...

    They were running in lockstep off the final hurdle, McLaughlin's slightly longer stride inching her closer, but she was never going to get there.

    Wows all around when the WR came up.

    Good points. Pondering the splits and watching replay, I would say that, if one were imagining a perfect "re-do" for SMU that might have won her this race, it would begin with a slower first 100m.
