    The differential for the Japanese sprinters means they are not very fast at accelerating from
    the blocks. If they were their individual Times would be better and that 2.86 would not be so massive.

    3) we can run the hurdles like the multis do: 4 lanes at a time with an empty lane between
    Them. That will solve the problem.

    But to your point, if Gatlin can't run a "long leg" he shouldn't be on second.

    Rodgers has been involved in so...

    Yes, they do, but they have those small hands to overlap on the stick and they have two hands on the baton for a relatively long time near the end of the zone.
