    What if Montgomery and Bednarek fulfill their early promise?

    (Fred Kerley 44.5, Michael Cherry 43.6, Wil London 44.43, Rai Benjamin 44.19);

    2. Jamaica 2:57.90
    (Akeem Bloomfield 44.9, Nathon Allen 44.2, Terry Thomas 44.3, Demish Gaye 44.5);

    3. Belgium 2:58.78
    (Jonathan Sacoor 45.3, Robin Vanderbemden 44.5, Dylan Borlée 44.7, Kevin Borlée 44.2);

    Great point!! When dealing with 4-8 different athletes who are all capable of injury, conditioning issues, illness or peaking issues, long-range predictions become exponentially complex and prone to inaccuracy.

    But they are still FUN to make!!

    The US men's 4x400 relay victory closed out a phenomenally successful meet for the United States!! 14 Gold medals, 11 Silver & 4 Bronze for a total of 29. One of the most dominant national showings in recent years and it bodes well for America's likely 2020 success in Tokyo. Congratulations Team USA!!

    When was the last time that the medal count, 14 vs 3, 29 versus 8(?) were so big. I guess that for fairness, one should also look at the individual events, as the relays give the big guys an advantage.

    Another thing to note that USA men stepped up big time from 2017, with 7 individual golds (Coleman, Lyles, brazier, kendricks, Holloway, kovacs Taylor).

    Only 3 individual golds in 2017(gatlin, kendricks, Taylor).

    That means more wild cards for Eugene

    And a shout out to Columbia, even though they missed the podium. They've been running good all year, with Zambrano, getting their Pan Am on, earlier this year!

    Akeem Bloomfield, Nathon Allen, Demish Gaye, Christopher Taylor, Javon Francis, Chantz Sawyers, Anthony Carpenter, Dashawn Morris, Sean Bailey, Shemar Chambers, Terry Thomas, Anthony Cox, Antonio Watson. Gaye is the eldest. Most of those are 18-22. NR is toast if all remain healthy and train on. WR a real possibility.
