    A great WC for Team USA. The high point for me was probably the improved passing and lineup for the Men's 4x100 and 4x400 Relays after near disastrous outings in the preliminary rounds.

    Also the...

    You are absolutely right. Track & field hits peak popularity in Olympic years and Noah's flashiness should give the sport a much-needed boost in 2020!!

    Great points!! Rodgers will be 35 by next summer's Olympics and needs to be replaced in the 4x100 squad. He is becoming more of a liability on the relay than he is an asset.

    Noah Lyles needs to get in some passing workouts with those in the finals lineup. Noah is clearly the fastest closer and would be the best anchor man!!

    After being out with injury for so long I would expect him to go in just his premier 400 event next year. He may run some 200s but an Olympic double in 200/400 would be VERY surprising and phenomenal.
