    Smith had good longevity too!

    I saw Gayle up close in London and he was really impressive and built of the event with great speed. Very humble too and just getting on with it without fuss. Tokyo is again going to be another great chance to see these top 5-8 face off against each other.

    Here's a swing at an upset for today: Raevyn Rogers edges Ajee Wilson!

    Edit: Actually, I shouldn't even put that out there. I would love to see Ajee join the small club (how many members?) of athletes to win IAAF U-18, U-20 and senior titles in the same event (saw the '11 U-18 victory in person)

    Nakaayi surely now takes the lead in the biggest upset race.

    And I think many people are probably upset with Nakaayi.

    She behaved relatively well in the final. Which doesn't negate the fact she should have been DQed in the semis.

    If it was an injury, that doesn't qualify as an upset. It can happen to anyone.
