    with nothing under his belt at this point, wouldn't have had high hopes for anything notable, but bummer that he's out

    Hope he'll be back to fighting shape in time for Tokyo.

    Tokyo will be three years since his last championship race with very few meets in between. Clearly he is in another class altogether but in this event, there is just too much competition to be absent for three years and come back in top form. We shall see.

    I am pulling for him. I would love to see him resurrect himself from the dust heap and return to his previous form, or something close to it.

    I would too for one simple reason. I think a 400 race with great competition is one of the best races in track. If WVN can come back to his previous form, he would face Norman, Kerley and maybe even Kirani(?) and that would be a great race to anticipate.

    I'm really pulling for him too. I think he has the right mental attitude and team behind him, but it's going to be really tough for him to come back to the same level. It's the difference between potentially being the GOAT of the event, and just a bright star that burned out too early.

    I think the lesson for sprinters here is: " Thou shalt not go near a rugby field."

    As WvN would say, "Dis waar!" (This is true, or True dat).
