    Kenny B explaining that a couple days before he was even set to run the 200m, he was asking his coach if there was any word on what would happen with the 4x1, if they would practice etc, but he just said there was no communication at all from Team USA.

    USA relay coaches are the best in the world!
    Just watched this interview last night. Pitiful. I’m glad he put it out there. You could hear the frustration in his voice. SMH.

    Italy’s passes were a thing of beauty. Monster leg by Jacobs, and incredible anchor from Tortu to walk down GB.

    The last pass to Tortu, in full flight, with no delay, was textbook. *chefs Kiss.

    Type of passing the US can only dream about man. 🤦🏽‍♂️

    Guessing the Italians used that long second leg thing by getting Jordan the stick early then him handing off late, always a smart move.

    Think it started with Armin Hary in 1960.

    Yup.

    Hope he continues to grow (work on that start, 1st 30 metres more) and does more 200s regularly.

Brilliant run, but he did not outrun Andre De Grasse, not even close. De Grasse made up a ton of ground over the first 80m on everyone, Italy and GB were us too far in front.

    I have seen that a few times, guys who ran better with stick in hand. Just saw another one in Tortu.

    In 2021 he has only run 10.28 and 20.56
    He's had leg injuries, too.

    Mitchell-Blake has regressed terribly over the years. He should be ashamed of himself. He shouldn't have given up that lead.

    I think Sani-Brown has been injured. He trains with the Tumbleweed group in Jacksonville, Florida with the likes of Bromell, De Grasse, Gemili. He pulled out of a couple of ATL meets this season although went to the trials in Japan where he performed sub-par. I think he finished 7th in 100m, he then pulled out of the 200m. No idea what's happening with Cambridge. I remember checking the trial results and noticed he couldn't make the 100m final!

    Don't forget the two 20KW golds also.

    Brown to Blake was shaky too, almost thought they were about to bobble.
    So they run 37.70 to Bronze with 3 terrible exchanges...just off the CR of 37.64. Go figure LOL.

    Totally sucks. After 2016 all eyes were on the crop of young sprinters (Sani-Brown, Kiriyu, Yamagata, Cambridge) they had and everything moving forward was to build up to Tokyo. Been shaky ever since.

    Italy were my dark horse to win Bronze! Definitely didn't expect Gold.
