    Because of the late timing that required a unique training routine to deal with multiple peaks and the intense climate of the venue, I gave all of the winners more credit than usual, but I wouldn't be too harsh on those who failed to replicate their best form.

    For instance, I don't blame Kerley for not winning. He ran hard and deserved a medal. The winner was a beast!

    Anybody think Gardiner's run reminded them of Van Niekerk 2015 win? Accelerated away from everybody off the curve. Very smooth and he was gutted at the end.

    Zambrano's silver is the first ever track medal for Colombia at the WCs. They have four TJ medals (two gold) from IbargŁen, and two golds from the men's 20K walk.

    They do have one previous track medal from the OGs, Restrepo's bronze in '92.

    Akeem Bloomfield and Nathon Allen left Auburn too soon. At least one of them would have been in the medal mix today if they'd spent the past season training at Auburn.

    I agree. I think he's the most talented of the bunch.

    Exactly zero of the events in Tokyo will be won on talent alone.

    Interesting take. Wherever he can find funding. I wonder what is the larger #?
    1. Professional track & field athletes that are able to train full time (not counting NCAA)
    2. IAAF full-time employees
