    Are you talking about last year? Because Samba never raced either of these two this year prior to the WC.

    Samba took down Benjamin in Shanghai early this season (47.27 vs. 47.8).

    Thanks for pointing this out. Having been born in a country that has won zero Oly TF medals, allows me to be more dispassionate about (all) athletes, their abilities and performances. (US citizen now for 20+ years).

    Warholm's pattern was 13 to hurdle 9, then 15 to the last one. Chopping down that much didn't seem to slow him down too much. He had to really stretch to make 13 to the 9th. Even on the backstretch, he was comfortable at 13. If he can run 46.92 this way, he can break the record without considering any 12 stepping.

    Those types of interviews are so much better than the ones given in the mixed zone with all of the background noise.
