    Which is somewhat odd, given that the savvy needed to consistently manage rounds at the highest level should also aid him on the relay, but it apparently doesn’t.

    Poland over Jamaica for 2nd (especially with Jackson anchoring Jamaica) in the w4x400 has be to a significant upset.

    I hope that Bowie at least keeps herself in relay contention, as I see the w4x100 shaping up to be a barn burner in Tokyo 2020.

    Big Game Nia Ali! One of my favorite athletes. I had no doubt that she would medal, but I didn’t expect at big PR and a win! And I’m really happy for Keni Harrison for running a big time race and...

    Yes, but considering that the final pass wasn’t very efficient because 1) they wanted be sure to correct their mistake from the day before and 2) a different (faster) anchor was running, any...

    If you are referring to the NBC interview by Johnson a few minutes after the race, then she didn’t say that. She just would not confirm one way or the other if she is running. I got the impression...

    Excellent run for USA, considering we were running with half of our B team. Congrats to Jamaica and GB. If the Brits can strengthen their foursome next year, Tokyo 2020 might be a barn burner for...

    Nicely done, USA! Only hiccup was the last exchange, but I’m not upset with how conservative the approach was for both guys. This relay represents a changing of the guard for USA as Gatlin and...

    So do I for the reasons stated. Seeding has be to be better, but so do the athletes earlier in the season to get a good seeding. Time qualification ignores race dynamics. Qualification by place...

    I wonder why Rodgers didn’t say he felt a twinge? He clearly abruptly slowed his gait a few steps before the exchange. I hope he isn’t hiding an injury (however minor) just to run the final.

    I tell people all the time that if testing and reporting were as rigorous in football and baseball as they are in T&F and Cycling, then the violation rates would be quite similar.

    This is the way I see it. Neither of DAS or SAFP is running down the other. DAS might only need a half stride lead to hold SAFP off, considering DAS is running very confidently right now.

    If the USA ran team tactics like the Kenyans and Ethiopians do, then Ce-Aira Brown could have "paid attention" to Nakaayi or least led Wilson into the final curve. I like Wilson and I'm hoping she...

    I would normally say the other 2 Kenyans sold out to help Chepkoech, but they did not seem to impact Colburn's race at all.

    The NBC commentators also missed the oldest Norwegian brother dropping out of the 5000 before the bell lap.
