    Well he managed his peaks well in 2015 (twice, for NCAA where he spanked Brommell and then later in the year for Worlds getting a bronze) and again in 2016 for Rio. Got hurt ahead of the 2017...

    De Grasse has shown a strong history of mastering his peaks for majors. Often at the beginning of seasons, he looks out of it but his improvements are steady yet significant.

    I'm not sure he can...

    I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with you but I just wanted to add that the 92 Barcelona race might as well have been 4 under sub-10.8 considering that head wind with Torrence 10.86 (-1.0) missing out...

    At ISTAF Berlin, De Grasse ran 9.97 with a nice tailwind to beat Simbine 9.99. In the w100, Swoboda ran a 11.07PR.

    Bowie ran 11.29 for 5th place today behind Kambundji's 11.12. Doesn't seem to be making much progress.

    Also, just curious - how fast do you all think Miller-Uibo could go over 100m right now?

    She said after Zurich, she's not running the 200m at Worlds so I think that officially closes the book on that. I also agree that it is way too late to change it for Doha even if she did appeal.

    Unbelievable run...21.74 into a slight headwind? Are you kidding me? At this point, she seems way more of a lock in the 200 than in the 400.

    Definitely a massive fail on the IAAF's part.

    Despite the time/placing, Bowie looked pretty good to me. I too think she will be ready given there's still over a month left. However, being ready and challenging for gold are are two separate...

    Not much to add except the alarm bells should be ringing loudly for Schippers. With Doha just over a month away, she'll surely improve but not sure enough to challenge for gold. With SMU out,...

    Not that this should come as a huge surprise, but SMU confirmed she's only contesting the w400 in Doha. Her team requested a schedule change but was denied so they are going for just the one event...

    Or he probably eased down as he seems to do in so many races!

    ???

    Slightly misleading. Gardner ran 10.74 in 2016, prior to a serious injury. I would not say she has 10.74 footspeed right now, barely sub-11 at the moment.

    I could have sworn I saw her start the race and pull up towards the end of the curve and I have no idea if she finished the race.

    If the US women medal in any of the sprints, I'd say probably best chance is in the w100 but completely dependent on what sort of form Bowie shows up in. She always seems to do well at the champs,...

    I'm pretty sure she will contest the LJ with the event occurring after the 100. She has also said as much in interviews and her desire to do the LJ is likely what made her abandon plans for the 200.

    Back on topic, I didn't see the heat but Brown running 22.6 into that sort of headwind is an impressive run.

    Better yet, let's call it what it is. But as the person who originally posed the question - yes, it is a stunning drop off in form.

    Richardson's performance at these champs is more than just a bad day, man. But the truth is right after NCAAs she was getting farther and farther from her 10.7 form and this was expected. ...

    That is true but a blanket long season excuse doesnt fly either. Richardson either didn't have optimal training to peak again for these champs or she is not cut out for a long year. Bottom line,...
