    I'm all in for CT, but Claye could pop a huge one (again!) and win it all.
    I agree with the USA sweep; I think Craddock is due for a really big one too.

    First four seem to have an edge over others. May get a big one from Pichardo.

    Absolutely. As much as I am a USA jingoist, I'm even more a Marks Snob, so whoever jumps big, has my vote!

    Marx snob? In that case, you should pull for the Cuban.

    Who is no longer competing for Cuba. Land of birth (or recent heritage) should not count for much in these discussions. If so, what happens to Britain's multiple golds from Mo, in the "Woolworth" double?

    I hope Craddock medals. He has been super consistent and only lost to Taylor and Claye this year. I remember his disappointment in Beijing losing the Bronze medal in the final round.

    I think Claudia Marx was a German 400m runner. Marx's great ally was Engels and isn't that the name of the USA's emerging 1500m man/miler?

    New thread on athletes who share names with political figures? Of course there were the Castro twins.

    So many Washingtons.
    Would you include athletes who became politicians?
