    Well said. There's no way Miller could have expected Naser to hold that pace. And since Miller herself has recent experience with rigor mortis at the last two global championships, why would she chase Naser only to have the same thing happen to her again? Miller ran a brilliant race but there's nothing she or any athlete can do about Beamonesque performances by others.

    Except that Beamon's improvement did not continue the same curve he'd been on for the previous 3 seasons. Naser kept the trajectory very smooth. 1.0, 0.8, 0.94.

    Come on man, you know better than that. Improvement curves level out after a certain point (sub-50 for women). Using this logic, Naser will be running 47.1 next year.

    Yes, but you can't predict when and where.

    Naser ran the same first 200 all three races. In the other two races she never needed to continue that pace. Naser told SMU the story but SMU failed to believe the ending.

    Jonathas with a great season that ends in a PB.

    Were you expecting Naser to run 48.1?

    That wasn't the point. Beamon's performance was esque-ish because it went so far beyond anything anyone had ever done, including himself. Naser kept going as she has since 2016, and if we ignore the Ks, she improved on Perec by 0.11. That is hardly esque-ish in any way.

    I wasn't surprised, as I indicated previously. I was thinking of predicting it a few days ago. Next time, I will, just for fun!

    Oh why not now, she will break the WR next year. Just 58.7% of her average annual improvement each of the last 3 years will do.

    I know many of us are getting drawn away by what might have happened if lanes were different, or whatever, but let's just bask in the glow of this outstanding race. Stellar times and a lot of PRs.
