  • The mistake we make when it is about predictions of relay compositions...

    Someone new can always suddenly emerge for a spot on any national relay, especially the season after Olympic Games. This is what I have always observed these last 30 years... For example, as a 400m addict, I see an unknown new talent no one had ever seen on the radars get a spot on the US relay in Eugene WC 2022 ... This is exactly what I have always loved in T&F. The sudden eclosion of a world class talent. The first time I had this feeling, it was about HB Reynolds in 1987... 44"10 What a big-bang then!!!

    As you say, it's what we look forward to, so it is not a mistake we make. We are all delighted when our 4x4 composition druthers get interrupted by the reality of a new star. For Mu to come on so fast (pun!) this year was a delight.
