    I really want to see this match up soon "Brazier outguns Giles in 1:4......"
    By the way Tokyo is wide open in every event from 100 to marathon and all jumps and throws. I am not sure about Thiam as much as 2 years ago.

      Prohibitive favorites include

      Men
      200 - Lyles
      800 - Brazier
      5/10 - Chep
      110H - Holloway
      PV - Mondo
      SP - Crouser
      Dec - Mayer

      Women
      SMU - whatever she runs
      HJ - Mahuch (even tho Lasits is still a force)
      TJ - Rojas
      Hep - Thiam

      That said, everyone of them could lose, just as in every event ever held.

        It depens on Mahuchikh and it also depends on which Lasitskene shows up in Tokyo. I really doubt she will be as mediocre as she was this winter.
        IF she's in her 2019 summer form, we're in for a treat in Tokyo. Could be even better than Doha or Beijing '08.

          You're right, but while a 28-year-old has championship experience and a longer time to build technique and strength, a 19-year-old has 'exuberance' and the double literal meaning of ascendancy, which is the primary reason that 'youth must be served'.
