    Yes, the short and chunky type I would also refer to as shorter and powerful. Yohan Blake, Gatlin, Greene, Asafa Powell all looked like bodybuilders.

    So he's not on the track team, not listed on the football roster, and not listed as a student. Do you know if he is alive? ;)

    OK, all joking aside, I hope he shows up and gets the support he...

    And lets not forget about the 6'5" Jamaican sprinter who rewrote the record books and looked nothing like his predecessors in the sprints. Its why I love this sport. What you see isnt always what you...

    Unfortunately its also becoming the most difficult event to compete and stay healthy. I don't think there is more than a 10% chance of seeing all these guys on the line in Tokyo. WVN hasn't run a...

    And the mystery continues. His tweets say all the right things, he appears to have turned his life around, but he just isn't appearing where he should right about now. Not sure whats going on.

    Nah..Gardiner would have beat him. Norman peaked in April, had a few great races after that but never came close to his 43.45 at Mt Sac. Gardiner was improving the entire summer and showed up healthy...

    He is so smooth with such long strides, he looks like he could be a great 800 runner as well.

    Agreed. Obviously a different mindset in the open 400 vs the relay.

    The problem with Tokyo predictions is that its getting really hard to keep your top 4 guys healthy and in peak shape. In April, I would have said the US 4X4 squad would have been Kerley, Norman,...

    That would be bedlam. Gardiner would have been in dead last at the break then passed them all like parked cars in the homestretch. At least one guy would be flat on his face per race

    I know its early but.....Tokyo mens 400. Van Niekerk, Gardiner, Kirani, Norman, Kerley all in. I've given up on predictions because this event is too hyper competitive to give anyone that honor....

    I was expecting more from Akeem Bloomfield today. I actually thought he could sneak onto the medal stand.

    Is it me or does Gardiner always look like he is in cruise control. He has such an effortless stride and expression. Perfect form. Especially next to the physical beasts of Kerley and Kirani. Had...

    If you were the US coaching staff, would you let Norman run? His injury left us with more questions and I'm not sure I would trust his ability to run at top speed right now. I think he needs to go...

    Michael Norman will be back next year, Im sure. He had a great season that didn't end well but overall, I think he is just too talented to keep off the Tokyo Podium. With that said, I hope I don't...

    Yes, Wottle. I remember Johnny Grays run in Barcelona. I really thought he had it until he got passed by General William Tanui & Nixon Kiprotich in the homestretch. All 3 looked like they were being...

    I need to see these new faces for the U.S. Norman and Kerley have looked great so far this season but not well tested yet with the pressure and rounds of competition at this level. I do hope they add...

    Ever since Norman ran his 43.45 in April, I was very curious to see how he could carry that level of fitness for another 5 months until the WC. Well, here it is and I think this will be a ...

    400 was a great race to watch. Very competitive and another reminder that Kerley vs Norman in the world final will be one to watch. With that said, I’m still scratching my head over the times? How...

    I would too for one simple reason. I think a 400 race with great competition is one of the best races in track. If WVN can come back to his previous form, he would face Norman, Kerley and maybe even...

    Tokyo will be three years since his last championship race with very few meets in between. Clearly he is in another class altogether but in this event, there is just too much competition to be absent...
