    No way around it. These times are a disappointment compared to earlier in the season. Gotta be hard to peak in late September after such a loooooong season.

    Dos Santos got 48.28, so improved but still #3 on the U20 list.

    There is no comparison between 3 races in 4/5 days in a global meeting and DL stuff; dont understand why you cannot understand that.

    The current 400h record was set after rounds at the Olympics in 1992. That's why I can't understand that.

    1/4 of a second between Bronze and 7th place. Very impressive field.

    I can only imagine that Warholm, in lane 4 and with the singular goal of winning simply went out and used his chief competitors as his guide to pace. He ran a perfect race for the win. Had he been in lane 7 or 8 he would have had to just run the race on time, and we likely would have seen a very low 47 or maybe another 46.x. There are advantages to lane 4 in these one lapers. If he really does enter the 400m and runs a PR then that might add another layer to the explanation.

    One of the greatest compliments you can give an athlete: "his competitors always end up injured after competing with him"

    Im almost ready to start thinking of him as the greatest track and field athlete of the year.
