    Oversight due to muddleheadedness (allergies!) I did see that he lost to Nilsen once, but he has a great claim to AOY.

    Brazier has no losses to Americans
    Benjamin has no losses to Americans

    Gonna be an interesting process sorting out AOYs!
    Muhammad also finished behind Little in Zurich.

    Hell no, he did not lose to anyone in any way shape or form. When assessing his performance, the stepping over the line has no relevance at all. I would like to hear gh's comment on this but I would be stunned if most voters in the TF&News rankings think of it as a loss. For instance, it would be no different than if he had participated in another event and did the same thing. Do you think Claye thinks if it as beating Taylor, really?

    Two world records in the two biggest meets of the year. The girl who beat her has second best time in history (Not Shamier, I know).
    How does she not win? I love Deanna and her joy, but not sure AR > WRx2


    Men's AOY - tougher. Sam's "team captain" that's for darn sure. But is his AR sexier than Brazier's? I kinda think so because it was against the WORLD. The TJ guys are badasses, but no "record" makes them less "sexy".

    Lyles' time in Doha was a let-down. And to me, that costs my vote.

    The voting is 1 to 10, not pick one. Look at the annual issue where they have the AOY etc.

    I see Muhammad as the clear favorite for women. While the men's choice is more difficult, I would put my vote for Kendricks. His event does not encourage relay competitions, and he dominated the world, showing grittiness when it most counted.

    I am quite interested in seeing where CT, NL and CC come out, as they had great years.

    I think you have that backwards. Brazier's AR was in Doha against the WORLD; Kendricks set his AR at the USATF Championships in Des Moines.

    I must agree with this.
