    I go say 9.73 +1.0 or 9.76 +0.4, so with a lot of luck he could get sub 9.6 with +2.0 but i dont see it possible hehe.

    Blake i go tell 19.82

    Based on Blake's current form he will run way below 19.82. Him being a great sprinter now, plus being a great curve runner now. I never knew he could run a bend like he did in Daegu. If he runs a bend like this with a tailwind of 1-1.5, he will definitely PR. I just did some calculations, if he gets a tailwind around 1.5, he will run a 19.47 on this fast track!!!

    Yes, chuku69 his potential is 19.5 but i dont see it in this moment, he can to be a little tired after Daegu.Zurich and Berlin, and he did not run 200 this year really, very few, and with bad time only 20.33.

    So i see around 19.8 on friday, but yes 19.5 next year :wink:

    You do understand that only 2 people in History have gone sub 19.5, one of them was the greatest 400m runner ever. The other was named Bolt.

    Your really ready to give Blake the #3 performer # 5 performance EVER?!

    A more intriguing question might be if a Blake who hasn't broken 20.3 this year is up for beating a Dix who ran 19.70 in Daegu.

    no wind (basic)

    Bolt - 9.75

    Dix - 19.80
    Blake - 19.90 - with a little more experience he could beat LeMaitre - next year he could be Dix's equal.

    Well, with Dix finally in the race i think that Blake could make 19.7 with luck(19.7-19.9) and i think thad Dix will be 19.7-19.9 so i want think that it could be very close race

    I think u don't understand or see the form Blake is in. Look he is a wonderful 200m runner. I even went back to look how he ran it back in high school at St. Jago. This much i can say, if conditions are right he will PR for sure. Dix won't beat him. We need to realize that Blake is a different sprinter now. Did u see his curve @ Daegu. I don't think this race will be close. Dix will be blown out by the curve. I expect to see the same thing that Usain did to him. Blake make up the stagger quickly on Dix and then runs away.
