    Grant definitely runs out of space late (anthropometrics and the high velocity he can attain) causing him to float hurdles late and a more significant drop in velocity than some of the other top guys...

    I'd rather see a 19.75 guy run the 200m more often-not at the expense, though, of running his normal schedule of 400m.

    I think London's issue began when he misjudged the speed Norwood was entering the exchange zone with. Norwood extending his arm for about 3-5m had to slow down the stick but then London has to "look...

    Very good analysis DJG. I also completely agree about your point about the upsweep pass not being as efficient as the push-free distance! There's no better pass to gain free distance than one that is...

    SM was cutting down her strides into takeoff as early as H2 (apparently so she could stay with her right lead) from what I could see in the video. DM is so efficient barely breaking stride.

    Same here, I thought the time at nationals was produced in part as bi-product of being forced to drop the workload due to injury. While that could be part of the answer it's difficult to restore work...

    When most of the top athletes have run their best they have done so with positive splits (same as 400m) and of course there are many examples of this as already provided.

    Agreed-increasing public awareness and interest in the sport is NOT aided by becoming less relevant/reducing exposure for an entire year. If not an Olympic year there should be a WC held.

    Since DM set a world record under less than ideal conditions it underlines the point even more IMO that she is probably in 49ish condition. WIth better weather that race could have been sub 52.

    Nice finish by Anna Cockrell in the 400mH. She was fourth off of H10 and got up for 2nd.

    Edit: Cockrell 1st as Watson was DQ-ed. Hooking a hurdle? Not sure what the reason was.

    Ice baths are particularly not useful during times of general and specific prep. ("build-up" phases) because they blunt the inflammatory response necessary for adaptation.

    Of course and I never said it was a fact-I was merely looking for the results that had the wind readings. Those were the only results I could easily find!
