    According to Tomasz Majewski, who commentated the meet, he's got a fairly basic technique, but is just incredibly strong.

    In an interview after the competition Crouser said much the same thing; that Romani is probably the strongest guy out there.

    The best part of the NBC commentary on the 100 was that Hutchings and Cram managed to get through the whole event without any reference to Gatlin's history. Hutchings even said that Steve Mullings is the meet record holder, without referring to his history. So refreshing ... Gatlin had quite a few fans in the stands encouraging him during warmups, and he looked awesome in the race.

    Benjamin's 47.16 makes him only man other than Edwin Moses with >1 performance in the Top 10 all-time M400mH performances.

    Benjamin has =#3 and #9.
    Moses has =#3, #7, #8, #10
    Young, Samba, Bronson and Matete have one each

    Young was bumped down to #11 by Benjamin's effort

    Benjamin's next best performance is outside the top 50 alltime, whereas Moses has 14, Samba 6, Young 5, Sanchez 4

    There can't be many track athletes who can boast that kind of stat over 30 years after retirement.

    Got me curious about the longevity of the marks of one of the greats, Carl Lewis.

    His best 100 is number 108 on the performance list, the best 200 is no. 50. In the long jump, on the other hand, he has 13 of the top 25 marks, holding down nos. 3, 5, 6 (2) & 8 in the top 10.
