    That was quite the call.

    after giving this some thought I think you are on to something, this is an issue for all sprints that should be addressed with a rule change.

    I would love at least one american with medal but i dont trust Allen and Holloway is still unknown on the international stage. So i think he might not handle the pressure.
    we really don't need any more of your predictions

    �� it looks like McLeod impeded Ortega and he was visibly upset after the race
    Shubenkov was on the outside and in this race sometimes it is better not to be in the middle lanes

He's been doing that quite often under pressure, putting Shubenkov (who is fortunately in lane 9) out of action for the better part of a month.
    Q.E.D. He started leaning right after the 7th hurdle, then nearly rolled into Ortega's lane as he was trying to make his move between the 8th and 9th hurdle, and and took him out as he hit the ground.

    Omar mentioned his hamstring in his BBC interview. Injuries during these championships is one of the headlining themes so far.
