    Who of these will break the WR first?
    #1
    -Mondo. 12cm,away
    -Christian Coleman
    -Michael Norman
    -Ryan Crouser. 32 cm away. I think may go first.

    I won’t be surprised if any or all of these guys break the world record in their events by the end of the 2020 Olympics.

    I am undoubtedly missing another sprinter and the 400h guy.

    Crouser. And then Norman.

    How can anyone believe that Norman won't go faster this year?

    I would bet on Norman then Samba/Benjamin.
    Mondo, Crouser, even Taylor is still in the convo for TJ.

    IMO, Noah Lyle's has a better shot at the 200m record than Coleman at the 100m record.

    I think Brazier and Holloway have better shots at their respective events than either Coleman or Lyles, personally.

    Er, Holloway in the 110h, just to be clear.

    I'll go with Crouser; Coleman seems unlikely, Benjamin and Samba are next in line.

    You think Brazier can take out the 800 record???

    I agree. I think the Crouser and Norman are both going to do a lot the next two seasons.

    Somebody to break the 400H record before anyone else mentioned on this thread breaks any other. Estimated percentages-

    Samba 40
    Benjamin 30
    McMaster 20
    Warholm 10

    32cm is a huge distance in shot put terms, given Crousers steady progression over the last few years he’d still need a significant improvement to get close to the WR.

    2016: 22.52
    2017: 22.65
    2018: 22.53
    2019: 22.74

    It’s looking increasingly likely the 400 and 400h will go this year but IMO they’re more likely to go at one of the DLs than in Doha

    I think if they could get together in mid-season DL meet, there's a good chance they would scare the record. However, my intuition that the 0.2 sec that Samba needs to take off to tie Kevin Young's record is hard to come by in the 400h, with somewhat set stride patterns and those pesky barriers. Any thoughts? Is is harder to lower records in hurdle events relative to flat?
