    That would yield slower times because people would go out too fast plus don’t forget all the contact

    Forget the track and cut-ins or all that. Take it to the road.

    I'm the kind of fan who, while loving to see fast times on all-time lists, when it comes to watching races I want head-to-head excitement, not time trials. women's 1500 today, for example, was pretty much a bust to me, much as I'm in awe of Hassan's talent.

Then Kirani shows up and just when I thought that Warinner/Merrit/Kirani would be a phenomenal matchup for the next few years, Van Niekerk appeasr on the scene and blows them all away. Then he goes AWOL and Norman looks unbeatable until Kerley says not so fast and just when it looked like those two were the future of the 400, Steven Gardiner quietly shows up and runs away from them all. I love this event. Nothing better than this.
    If all are at their best the WR may not survive such a meeting. Race tactics and lane draw will take center stage as it did with Naser and SMU.

    Sounds like an X-Games event! They get a lot of time on ESPN.

    I think the better collegians who had WC intentions knew they would miss a lot of the fall semester. With the physical demands of a late WC's, and the upcoming Olympic year, they saw it as a good time to leave the college ranks.

    Either that or take online courses. There was a photo on Instagram of Wadeline Jonathas taking an accounting exam online the evening of the 4x4.

    Gardiner moved into the all-time top 10, in the process knocking Kirani James out of it.

    I still believe that a healthy Norman would have handed Gardiner his ass.
