    This is very misleading. Looking at the official IAAF page, Bolt was primarily a 200/400m sprinter prior to 2008 and posted elite times. In fact, that 10.03 (+0.9) is the only official 100m time I...

    Such a great meet. I was worried that it would fall a bit flat with the absence of most American athletes, but I was totally wrong. In fact, the two American athletes I was most looking forward to...

    Eh, I don't think it's that deep. Athletes from that camp just rarely double. Powell didn't. SAFP didn't for years despite having the ability to be competitive over 200m, and has still only doubled...

    She's certainly been less predictable so far. Naser's 400m times this season have shown a clear trend towards improvement - her 50.13 at the Gyulai memorial broke the trend only but it was only 4...

    On Seyni.. I wasn't expecting a 49-low from her so early and she's the wildcard right now no doubt, but she's not going to keep popping PRs until the end of time. I have more confidence in the proven...

    Also a shame that Van Niekerk suffered a further setback and had to pull out.

    Still, should be a nice meet to go watch in person. Most looking forward to the men's...

    SMU is the only top sprinter, male or female, who has remained undefeated over the last two years, across two events no less. She could enter either the 200m or 400m and start as favourite. Naser has...

    A shame and I hope that they're able to compete soon, although Kerley was always going to pose the biggest threat here anyway.

    He threw >68 at the same stadium only 2 weeks ago I believe, so I dunno. Hopefully just a random off day.

    Really enjoyable championships in the end with some stand-out performances. In particular, it was great to see SAFP and Thompson back so close to top form given recent events.

    I didn't think you were being derogatory, I was just curious if there was something I'd missed. Thompson was very emotional immediately after the race, hence why she wasn't interacting much with...

    She's sung SAFP's praised on many occasions, and has also been supportive of Williams, so what gives you that impression?

    ^Agreed. No other active female sprinter has ever gone this quickly. In fact, no other active sprinter has run sub-10.8 with less than a +1.0 tailwind, so these two are already in a form that no-one...

    Briana Williams will run sub-11 to make the team. The showdown between ET and SAFP will be epic, both seemingly in top form.

    Point taken, but although Seyni is certainly a sub-50 waiting to happen, I'm not sold she can she challenge the 49 second barrier so soon. Stranger things have happened I guess.
