    Hardin was a great flat runner, he had a 46.8y PB. He was world leader in the flat 400/440y twice ('33 and '34) and #3 on the all-time list behind Eastman and Carr.

    Moses had a pb of 45.60, and a relay split of 44.1 to his credit. Hemery ran 44.6A in the 1968 OG relay, and 44.9 in the 72 relay final. Akii-Bua rarely ran relays but he did do 45.82 on the flat in 1976

    Karsten loves the outer lanes, will be interesting to see how he does on the inside in the final.

    Just remember that John Akii Bua on the biggest stage of sports demolished a fantastic 400H field ... from lane1!!..

    user4 ranks John's 1972 performance as the second greatest shock and awe campaign in all of the history of track and field, the ripples are still being felt!!..

    The greatest performance of all time of course was the 1964 10k race. Gravity waves from that performance are still penetrating the far reaches of the universe !!... but you knew that !

    One side story here is whether Dos Santos can knock off the WJR. He's now at 48.35. Danny Harris' loooooong-standing mark is 48.02. #2 all-time is Jehue Gordon at 48.26. Dos Santos is 3rd.

    Methinks this bodes well for Rai. I seem to be one of the few who thinks he will win.

    I think Rai is in the best position lane wise. Warholm though is amazing.

    It will be interesting to see what Samba does. He has taken it out conservatively and finished strong in the rounds. Not he basically has no choice. If he really is healthy, could he pull a WVN?

    No! Plus I don’t think there will be a WR in this race. I am predicting 47.12 for the winner.
