  • Will we see a 200/400 double any time soon?

    Is there anybody who thinks we will see a 200/400 double soon? Is there any man or woman out there capable of the double?

    Who do you people think could double at 200 and 400 meters today?

      Certainly not any on the men's side right now who are capable of truly elite performanes in both sprints... how about Kenteris? He might have just about the best combined 200/400m credentials of any active sprinter rightn now

        Hey Brian,I think you are right about Kederis. There are alot of questions about him though. Marion Jones would be the closest thing we would have ,if she would run the 400. Tyree would really have to run some good 200's ,but he has alot of talent.If Michelle Collins hadn't been hurt we might of seen her attempt it. However she is more of a 400 runner and she would have to beat Ana Guevara. Definitely a difficult task.

          double in what way ? win both events ?
          nobody could come even close. kenteris best time in the 400 was 45.7 and then switched to the 200 meters. only mj could do it from the men's side.

            Hey thanos we didn't say it was going to be easy. All we said was Kenteris has the best combination of speed and strength to pull it off. Anyway, right now is as good a time as any to try, because there is not a dominator in either event right now.

              Kenteris only ran 45.7? I thought he ran in the 44's

                Kenteris" website quotes what I imagine to be his pb for 400m as 45.60. Unfortunately it's written in Greek so raeding it is something of a problem.

                    Justin Gatlin ran 44.2r early in his outdoor season of 2002. If his current injury precludes his running the 100, he could do 200/400 in 2004.

                      I think kederis is overrated.

                        So is Gatlin. But he's been annointed the savior of American sprinting.

                          "I think kederis is overrated."

                          Huh? 2000 Oly champion, 2001 World champion, ranked 2nd in the world last year with a 19.85. He doesn't race much, but he has been lethal in the big races over the past few years. Give the guy credit for knowing how to win.

                            The Greek gets little credit because he is white. It's that simple.

                            He's plain fast, is what he is. And not psyched out like a lot of white guys who probably have the talent, but are scared or brainwashed out of competing before they even hit their teens. Wonder how many potential white triple jumpers with world beating talent go to waste in the US alone every year. I do think (American/Caribbean/W. African) blacks have a very high number of guys with the natural ability to succeed in the sprints/long jump, higher percentage of guys than the white population. But that doesn't mean so few whites have the talent that we see one pop up every 10 to 20 years.

                              See the Usain Bolt thread. The only question is how you define "sson."
