    Re: Mens 100

    Yes, the M100m was close but the times were unimpressive--and no negative wind. It's always disapointing when people run 10.04 in opening rounds and then the final is slower.

      I think the times were affected by the competitiveness of the event. Nobody had the luxury of cruising in the quarters and semis to save themselves for the finals. Some of those quarterfinals and semifinal draws were BRUTAL.

      I suspect that the final Grand Prix meet of the season will produce a sub 10 sec winner and the winner could be any of the top six finishers at the Worlds or even any one of Capel, Gatlin or Powell.

        As I noted going in, track pretty spongy (Bekele says, "domo arigato" or something like that).

        Only the second time a WC 100 has been won over 10 seconds. Equaled Lewis from Helsinki '83 as slowest winner ever.

          which makes White's slow-starting 10.85 even more impressive.
