    I love Atticus but the chutzpah is off the charts.

    Anyone recall how many hurdles Young did at 12 steps in the record race?

    I tried counting the steps, but the resolution isn't the best. Definitely 12 steps on some of the backstretch, and 13 on the last several hurdles.

    Samba's coach Hennie Kotze (I was the first 400H athlete he coached 30 years ago) told me he was only able to start hurdling a couple of weeks ago (since the hamstring tear in mid July)! You can see how tentative he was on the hurdles.

    Roll on Tokyo, and let's hope all three are fighting fit!

    According to this site, Young had 2 segments of 12 steps:

    Not sure if it on that site or another, but Young ran 11 steps for 1 segment in the 1992 Olympic heats!

    I'm LOLing at the comments that Warholm doesn't look athletic/impressive/too soft. Some of y'all are too used to looking at dudes juiced up and thinking that's the norm for an athlete. Warholm has an athletic, natural body, great technique and fantastic mental aptitude and a competitive nature.

    Samba was obviously tentative over the fist half of the race and it was great to see him come through at the end. More impressive that he could only get back over the hurdles recently. Considering we had no idea whether he would turn up in form or not, he didn't disappoint - it was unrealistic to expect him to challenge for gold.

    Warholm's BBC interview in the studio was lovely. He is very personable, informed and humble. I like him a lot.

    What you say makes sense. Careful analysis of Samba's races against Warholm and Benjamin, prior to the WC, is revealing. In all of those races, he was never more than half a step behind his main competitor. From the ninth hurdle onwards, he handled them with ease, and beat his main rival handily. Warholm bashing the ninth hurdle in one race, made matters a lot easier in one case. Let's hope all three are fit and ready in 2020, especially in Tokyo.
