  • Mens 100

    Sad day for US sprinting. No medalist for the USA at the world Championships in the Men's 100m.

    Sorry old chap. The writing was on the wall from early in the season. Hollywood Williams just ran too many races and Monty and Greene are finished. The only American who could have won that race was Gatlin and he wasn't at the meet. It will be even tougher next year with Brown one year older and tougher and Asafa Powell one year older and tougher.

      What do you think about the possibility of John Capel making a serious 'run' at the 100, along with Gatlin?

      Capel seemed to have some decent results at 100 this summer.

        Really sorry to ask a dumb question, but where does one go for latest results? Don't have a dish for Canadian TV; don't see results on T&FN website; so I'm reading comments about races and I don't know the results. I'm sure they're somewhere, please advise.

            Thanks so much. www.letsrun.com seems to have the most stuff from lots of different sources.

              That must have been a great finish. Have places 1-6 ever been so close (.06)?

              BW and TM ran well, they just came up on the short end of the stick today. It's not like they got blown away. All season the 100 has been a crapshoot.

              It's a tad premature to announce that Monty is done. Today he was just .04 away from WC gold and he set the WR less than one year ago!

              Greene might be done. In the semi photo finish, he personifies defeat.

                Sad day for U.S. sprinting. Jon Drummond's behavior. (But then, this isn't exactly the first time a U.S. sprinter has been an embarrasment to the country he represents.)

                  Too bad Drummond didn't go to San Jose State.
                  They'd erect a statue of him on campus!

                  [see recent news item about Mexico City Tommy Smith/John Carlos gloved fist statue being put up on San Jose campus]

                  Of course the Drummond statue would be laying flat on the ground!!!

                    If he'd gone to Berkely, they'd have erected a bldg. in his name, or changed the name of one already there to "Drummond Hall."

                      How about renaming the Cal-Berkely Marching Band to be the Drummond Bugle Corps?

                      (sorry, bad one....)

                        Just watched it. It hurt to look at him in the slow motion replay keying on him. He basically pulled up with some kind of injury in the last 10 yards.

                          No, that's a good one. Don't be ashamed!

                            Don't know, but the race reminded me of the women's final in Barcelona '92, 1-5 all within 0.06, though today's men's race was even closer.

                              Maurice limps after every race. It's become a habit just in case he needs a quick excuse for losing.
