    Not sure if they are accurate, but if so, that last 100m is impressive!
    From memory, WVN's crazy splits were:

    10.7
    20.5
    31.0
    43.03

    After he breaks the WR or comes close then the top two will be mixed African, Asian, and European. Interesting! Dividing up the WR according to 'extraction' might be complicated unless we just do a genetic test and do it by %.

    I just got home (Bay Area) from the Mt. SAC Relays. Seeing Norman's race was worth the whole trip (easily).

    Wow, so if Norman stays healthy and continues to progress steadily to Doha, the race may very well be for second even with the world record holder, Bloomfield, and Gardiner in the mix? Interesting!

    Benjamin's performance is telling, too! I don't see how that 400m hurdles record stays on the books with him and Samba healthy this year.

    Was that Steve Lewis taking media shots with Watts and his fabulous duo towards the end of that video? Harkens back to the Mt SAC race of '92 which included Kevin Young's 45.1 that day.

    So....all you coaches and training guru’s who are way smarter than me about this kinda stuff.

    Ato Bolden responded to a tweet, and basically said that Quincy Watts told him a month ago to expect Norman to open in 43. (Guess he could tell based on workouts, etc.) So clearly they knew where their training program had him and were ok with that.

    Thoughts on Norman running so fast so early?

    A time this fast so early in the season is obviously unprecedented. Any concerns on him still running his fastest later in the Yr. Continuing to build off of this...?

    Are reasonable and even soft projections of him running sub 43 by the end of the season (health permitting) crazy?
