    Yeah I guess I can see it happening as part of his off season training in a low key meet somewhere but once the regular season starts in earnest it should be back to basics.

    Sooo...No 800 for Gardiner. He is 200/400 that's it.

    800? Well If you know anything about Gardiner any event that introduces more lactic would get an emphatic "hell no" from him. He started out short sprinting and it was the heaviest lift to get him to...

    Running that fast in April and then trying to peak again for US Nationals and then once more for the WChs was too much to ask.

    If all are at their best the WR may not survive such a meeting. Race tactics and lane draw will take center stage as it did with Naser and SMU.

    Congrats to Naser on that win and also to SMU on that AR. Words fail to adequately describe what happened on Thursday night in Doha over 1 lap of the track. The others behind PBs left and right. Up...

    Well, I have been touting Gardiner for a while now. Today he delivered the performance. Timewise I felt he was headed for 43 mid last year before he got injured after running 43.87 and 43.99 on back...

    Well all this does is take the yolk off the 100/200 and put it on the 200/400. The idea is to make the schedule fit for use on both sides of the divide. Schedule a day off on day 4 for both. Run the...

    Lmao..

    Koch ran 21.78 into a -1.3 the year she's set that WR. Coincidentally she did that time in August as well. The WR run followed in October that year.

    Its just been amazing to watch her bring the speed this year. The last athlete to bring sub 21.75 speed into a 400 was Marita Koch. She is the only one on record to bring sub 34.5 speed (ignoring...

    Disappointed he didn't make it as he is one of my favorites but it was always going to be a long shot having not raced all season long. Happy he got a chance to compete and get back to his best.
