    And semi 1 has the most depth, despite not having any of the top 3.

    I figured two of the big three would end up in a semi together. Looking forward to seeing Samba's approach tomorrow.

    good point and they are both long striders so the last place they want to be is in 1,2 or 3.... maybe even 4.

    I'm pulling for Benjamin but it will hard to beat both Samba and Warholm, especially if Samba is at full health.

    And hurdles with them, which is a really big deal that is complicated by leading legs if anything is off before H9&10

    He ran like an idiot the last 5 meters, as though he was about to win his heat and looking around at the losers. Inexplicable for an experienced athlete.

    Here's a mini-paradox:
    If all three are at 100%, picking one to beat the other two is a fool's bet, so NO ONE should win!!

    If all 3 are 100% health, I would confidently pick Samba then flip a coin for Warholm/Benjamin for silver.

    But any one of the 3 winning is no surprise to anyone, which means picking one against the other two is a very risky bet.

    posting this here because its the next event....the US tv broadcast just switched from the international feed with commercial breaks to an NBC broadcast....aaaaaauuuuuugggghhhh

    the graphics are worse, the camera angles are all wrong, they spent more time showing the commentators saying inane things than showing any field event, they basically only show americans and i hate everything now
