    Nice run by Coleman. I think he can get silver in the 200 ahead of DeGrasse and behind Lyles.

    or does he skip the 200 and just do the 4x1? (not a question based on any intel, just a wondering in less-than-friendly conditions)

    Well, this went to form for me! I'd predicted Coleman-Gatlin-De Grasse, so good to see the men I considered the top three coming good on that.

    As early as yesterday in the heats, Coleman looked to be a class apart from the other guys. Glad he got the title that this season, and the last, suggested he should have won. With another full season of health and good training, I think he can really take a shot at the American record.

    Gatlin is an astute competitor. He knows when to fire the bullets from his gun, and came away with as good a result as he could have expected. Had he not had any injury issues this year, he could have made more of a race of it, but I don't think he could've beaten Coleman today.

    De Grasse knows how to peak and hold his head in high-pressure competition. Happy to see him with a bronze and PR.

    I assume you're referring to a Gatlin Gun? (groan)

    I agree, significantly less than 2017. But his form definitely could still use some work.

    That was good. And corny. Right up my alley. :-)

    This is the 3rd fastest performance we've ever seen at the World Championships, right? The fastest outside of that 2009 race, unless I'm missing something. Completely passed me by at the time, but that's pretty damn huge.

    Is this the beginning of Coleman dominance? He is much better than the others.

    Gatlin has 3 silvers and a gold in the last 4 WC all after the age of 30.

    This is the 2nd fastest WC 100 final off the top of my mind.

    2009 - 9.58
    2019 - 9.76
    2013 - 9.78
    2015 - 9.79
    1999 - 9.80

    If I'm missing one let me know.

    2nd fastest winning time but 3rd fastest overall performance since Gay ran 9.71 behind Bolt in 2009.
