    But yeah Coleman ate their lunch and dinner on the lead off
    Yeah, I assume he was healthy. He just looked REAL hesitant on his take off. It was as if he was unsure when to go. Smh.

    That depends on how you count it. According to the IAAF, NACAC is one area. ATFS has separate records for North America (which is just the US and Canada) and CAC (Central America and the Caribbean).

    I generally follow IAAF for area records since (i just learned) T&FN doesn't track them. But its fair, when talking about Area, especially for north and central america is confusing.

    Coleman pretty much won the race on that lead-off, blew the doors off Gemili. Gatlin was okay. Rogers looked like he was going to stumble at the beginning of the exchange with Gatlin. No one was going to catch Lyles, but he is definitely not as fast as he was earlier in the year.

    I had the same impression. The first two passes were good enough but that last pass might well have cost them the WR.

    Still not 100% sure he didnít just estimate when to take off, without using the mark. Lol

    Coleman might of just ran the greatest leadoff leg ever. He was a monster!

    With Coleman & Lyles bookending the Relays for the foreseeable future, when you combine the US talent pool in the sprints. The WR should be approachable at the next major Champs.
    Great points!! Rodgers will be 35 by next summer's Olympics and needs to be replaced in the 4x100 squad. He is becoming more of a liability on the relay than he is an asset.
