    do you have some actually informed information that leads you to believe that IAAF full-time employees (which IAAF Council Members/Officers are not) draw huge numbers?

    Every time that a USA runner does not perform as hoped there is here a rather juvenile streak which comes out ; anti- usa accusations are just frigging stupid and babyish.

    This is the worst conjecture Iíve read.
    What the blazes are you talking about, "conjecture" The Americans have shown in all the years i've been attending T and F( thats 70 years) that their athletes are renowned for strong competitive performances and coming through when it counts and there have been so many examples over the years ; just read the results of WC and OG. WTF Bolt and yams has to do with my comments is puzzling but you clearly know bugger all about T and F.

    Nice win for Gardiner!! The 2020 Olympic 400 is shaping up to be one of the best ever & maybe even a sub-43 second world record!! Gardiner, Zambrano (only 21), Kerley, James, Gaye & Korir. Plus Norman & Van Niekirk if back to full health!!

    Could well be one of the big showdowns of the Tokyo Games!!

    Is it me or does Gardiner always look like he is in cruise control. He has such an effortless stride and expression. Perfect form. Especially next to the physical beasts of Kerley and Kirani. Had Norman been in this race, I don’t see any change in the gold. No one was beating Steven Gardiner today. Nice run!

    I was expecting more from Akeem Bloomfield today. I actually thought he could sneak onto the medal stand.

    I wasn't expecting more from Akeem Bloomfield today and he is one of my favourite athletes. I know he wasn't in three round shape. There are other factors why he and Allen have not run well since leaving Auburn. These will hopefully be corrected for Tokyo

    That was such a smooth and effortless performance. 43.48 never looked so easy.
