    He's sticking around just long enough to break Kim Collins' 40+ WR of 9.93, which was Collins' PR. He'll be 40 in 2022. No other 40-year-old has broken 10.00.

    Happy they showed more than one throw and stayed on the event for the last few throws. Romani had quite a day.

    Yeah, agree...a little premature. Schippers has a really long time to work herself back into the mix with no tough trials to contend with and the w200 in Doha not until the first week of October I think!

    Okagbare looked very good, but her inconsistency is maddening. She'll run a 22.6 next time out if her history is any indication and then flop out when it matters. Hoping I'm wrong, when she's on, she's really on and there aren't many who can match her top end speed.

    Romani has a 61 cm or 2 foot pr today. Got every record but the world record. Doha should be exciting.

    Gatlin!! To be honest, I didn't see that coming. I thought sub-10 but not that.

    Dibaba didn't blow a tire, she PR'd, just got beat by people going even faster.

    Weird slow sprint times...until the men's 100.

    Distance races have been nice.
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    Schippers may have some time to get it together but she couldn't even beat Prandini today...her great top end speed was a couple of years ago...

    If we can get the baton around the track. And that's a big if.

    And she did it from lane 8. Just saying.

    My reaction was, "who the hell is that," before I realized it was Okagbare and it made me happy to see. The Women's sprints were great fields and surprising finishes.
