        It would certainly shock me if she drops 4 more seconds in the 800. 1:55 might be an expectation I could see.

          I will be shocked if Gabby Thomas breaks the AR (21.34).

                  Toshiro Mutob head of the Tokyo 2020 organising committee has refused to rule out cancelling the Games over surging Covid-19 cases with the bubble system at the Athletes Village was already “broken”.

                    #1) Toshiro Mutob is known for his careful use of words. His exact words were: "we won't rule out cancelling the Olympics." This comment was blown out of proportion by Suga's political opponents and many in the media that want to see the Olympic Games cancelled.

                    #2) Japan Prime Minister Suga was quoted on Tuesday. He said, "The world is faced with great difficulties. We can bring success to the delivery of the Games."

                    #3) IOC President Thomas Bach was also quoted on Tuesday saying: "Billions of people around the world will follow and appreciate the Olympic Games. They will admire the Japanese people for what they achieved. Cancelling the Olympics was never an option. The IOC never abandons the athletes."

                    #4) The increased bets from gamblers that the Olympics will be cancelled is the textbook definition of "scared money". And you never want to follow the gamblers that bet because of fear. The smart money is still on the Olympics going as planned, with many adjustments and alterations occurring.

                        Yeah, 3 is a big ask, but these three certainly do seem doomed.

                          Cole Hocker would be an absolute shock if he were to run better than 3:27.40. What has he shown that would even remotely indicate this ability? That's without taking into account the fact that championship racing doesn't usually lend itself to balls to the wall time trials.

                            I agree and would add the women's 100m (Flo Jo's 10.61) as a potential world record to look out for.

                            IMO these are the absolute most likely American records to go down.

                              One of the things that I am looking forward to seeing in Tokyo is events like the LJ & PV.

                              Without a crowd to give them the rhythmical clapping they use as a stimulus, I predict the rest of the field will provide this support for their competitors. In an empty stadium, the sound will still provide a boost.

                              And it will really fit the new Olympic motto "Stronger, Faster, Higher - Together'.

                                First, the official AR is 3:29.30, not 3:27.40.
                                I believe 3:29.30 is the generally accepted AR!
                                Second, Hocker hasn't been in a really fast race yet!
                                By "really fast", I mean the kind where Cheruiyot sets a really hard pace.
                                IF that happens, Hocker (& everyone else who wants to win) would have to go with him--or at least stay a lot closer than he does normally to the leader!
                                That's how he improves his time by maybe 5 or 6 seconds in one race.
                                He HAS the potential; he just hasn't been in a race where he's been put to the test!
