  • Sure, but the question is : how does this race compare to the one he did last year around the same date ? Was he low-47 shape then ? If yes, we can expect something great in the next weeks.

      Might have been, might not have been; he was pretty sharp by late May/early June in each of 2017, 2018 and 2019 and didn't improve his season bests much from there, but 2020 wasn't the most normal of years.

      Either way though, 33.26 is already something great and I think we can expect more great things in the next weeks.

        You can watch the race in this tweet account. IMO he did not look as smooth. He had some hesitation on 2nd one before last hurdle. He will get better, much better soon. It is a bit late to run a first race in June when Olympics is in July.

          Thanks for the link. I agree with you that Warholm wasn't very smooth over some of the early hurdles. Some choppiness and hesitation on his part. But I was impressed at how strong he finished this race. It looks like Warholm is in sub 47 shape right now. I predict he gets the WR sometime this season.

              My thinking was he ran 33.78 last year, then a month later ran 47.10 and 46.87. So after this opener, in about a month, he should be in form to run 47.00. But ofcourse thats not how the world works, so well have to wait and see!

              I do really hope the WR gets taken down though. It would be a bummer if it turned out like the HJ in 2013 - 2015, they get so close, but then 4 years later were back to seeing everyone struggle to break 48 seconds.

                Just curious, how do you know/where did you hear this 10 day timeline?

                  The chopiness means he's becoming so fast he has to adjust his 13 strides more. Perhaps he can now go 13 all the way more easily over the 400 and that may be the key to the WR. So far in his best races he had to switch at h9 or 10.

                  • Yasser Triki of Algeria (formerly competed for TxA&M) jumped 17.31m in the triple jump in Algeria today. Algerian record and #5 in African history. I cant find the wind reading on it though.

                      Too many runners getting close for one not to break through. Young was almost 26 when he did it. Benjamin is 23, Warholm is 25 and Samba turns 26 in a couple months; Dos Santos is 21 and McMaster is 24. There is a window of four to eight years before this group is gone and that doesn't include any new blood. Young made a huge improvement to break the record meaning it can happen any time from any of the guys listed.

                              Amazing result. But check out Richardson's tweet:

                                OMG!!. That's it. Never doubting a proven champion again!! I should know better but I thought she was just past her peak but still Olympic Champion worthy. The chase is on. The Queen still reigns. I am assuming this is wind legal. Do we have an official reading?
