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

    Yeah, I know that. Just seems like a few big-arm, no control specimens might gravitate.

    Ok, seeing as though you went to all that effort, here goes...

    Will VNK make it thru the rounds? YES. He will make the final, but wont medal.
    Can C Murphy recreate his OT magic? Not quite, NO.
    Can Hocker do the same? As above. NO.
    Which event(s) for J inge? If 1500, can he hang with T Cher? If 5000, can he hang with Kiplimo? He will hang, but will get a bronze.
    Should we put marmalade on Cheptegei? What does this mean?
    Is RB up to the Warguy Challenge? Yes, It will be the closest race, won by 1/100th!
    Who will drop the baton first, USA or Jam men? JAM....right after GBR
    Has Barshim been sandbagging, jump 2.38 and win? Not sandbagging, but he has a shot
    Does Mondo win by 20cm and break the WR? He wins by 20cm but no WR
    Will JuVaughn medal in 0, 1 or 2 events? One
    Can Wunderkind Ceh challenge the Old Guard? No, no, no
    Can Winkler break up a Pole 1-2? I think the Poles have it
    Can Scantling hold serve and medal? (Hint: YES!) Yes once more!

    Can Ta Lou break a Jam 1-2? Nope
    How will SMU manage a double? She will get one medal, in the 400m
    Will Felix seal her destiny with an indiv 400 medal? Nope.
    Is Mu ready for a coronation? She is. It will either be outstanding and she wins by a country mile....or she trips and falls
    Will Hassan really attempt the Triple? No, she is playing with us!
    Is DM ready to seriously challenge SM (no slight to Bol)? No. She is half a second down. She will do well to hold off Bol for silver.
    Can Nag unseat Sid at the top? Yes!
    Will The Beast be unleashed? B4 this season I said no. But she has a chance.
    Rojas WR? Yes!
    Will the Gong ring victory over Epic Adams? Yes

    Are the Chinese JT Ls ready? Is MM? Hussong for the win

    Will VNK make it thru the rounds? YES but no medal IMO.

    Which event(s) for J inge? If 1500, can he hang with T Cher? If 5000, can he hang with Kiplimo? 10k and 5 k for her.

    Who will drop the baton first, USA or Jam men? Trick question. USA will be DQ due to exchange zone violation. God let me be wrong.

    Has Barshim been sandbagging, jump 2.38 and win? No medal.

    Can Ta Lou break a Jam 1-2? Is this a joke? NO.

    Will Felix seal her destiny with an indiv 400 medal? Two medals in relays.

    Despite the poor leadership by decision makers in Japan, the wheel is spinning, and they are now pot committed to having the Olympic Games in some form. It will be the messiest Olympics in a long time. But these Olympic Games will go on!!

    I can picture an indoor sport or two being cancelled at the request of the particular sports' organizations, but the Japanese politicians have to keep the Olympics going to save face, after having let it get this far.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all....see the Tokyo thread.... Tokyo Oly head today won't rule out last-minute cancellation.

    It would be a popular decision in Japan.
