    Mboma's 2nd 100 has to be the best ever.

    OK, I noticed in the men's 400H results that TR16.5.3 appeared next to Dos Santos's time. I looked up the rule and it is "Disturbing the start" but there is no explanation of what that means. I watched the replay (in Spanish) and with the first start that was called back, they gave Dos Santos a yellow card. I'm guessing that was for moving his head up while in the set position. On the next attempt at a start, they threw out Copello for a false start. Then, on the third try they finally got the race going.

    Is "Disturbing the start" what Dos Santos did by moving his head up while in the set position? Nobody seemed "disturbed" except the officials and the reaction times (displayed at 3:19 in the video) were all within the legal limit. His replay starts at about 4:07 in this video:

    Me too. Maybe they heard us. Can't say it enough times. Aside from the inherent unfairness, It is ridiculous that a $30K first prize rides on a last attempt foul.

    Forget non-winning, that is the overall 3rd best single day double in history,
    1. 29.48 – Justin Gatlin (9.77, 19.71) – September 5, 2014 – Brussels
    2. 29.59 – Divine Oduduru (9.87, 19.73 ) – June 7, 2019 – Austin
    3. 29.61 – Andre De Grasse (9.89, 19.72) August 9th, 2021 – Zurich
    4. 29.67 – Ato Boldon (9.90, 19.77) – July 13, 1997 – Stuttgart
    5. 29.70 – Divine Oduduru (9.94, 19.76) – April 20, 2019 – Waco

    I'm super happy for him. Won't burn too much energy (US Trials is war) before the WC. Michael Norman needs a coach like John Smith to become the 400m boss someday...

    But this has to work both ways right?

    They worked hard to win in Doha 2019 to win the world championship race and gold medal. Why should Kerley and Bednarek get preference over them? (and Coleman's ban is over before 2022)

    Most stoked for Hayes. A good consolation prize for her after missing out on a relay medal thanks to WA's crappy scheduling.

    I still have a gut feeling Coleman will not be back next year to defend. Sucks for Bednarek though, I agree.

    Literally unbelievable

    Elaine Thompson: March 2014 PB of 23.73, August 2015 ran 21.66
    SAFP: March 2007 PB of 11.49, August 2008 runs 10.78
    Yohan Blake: March 2010 PB of 20.60, August 2011 runs 19.26

    That 25.05 time from March was literally the first and only time she ran the 200m until May this year. She very well could have been running 23/22 last year if she was running it.

    Both 1500s were fun! Cheyriot's finishing arm-drive was great.
