      Your pseudo 18.99s suggests a sub-19"00 200m... 😉

        I'll give you a single one:

        I'd like to see a WR broken in the 800 through 10,000 that was accomplished without rabbits or pacing lights. (long live David Rudisha!)

            I'll take a slightly different approach - I want to see be there to see Michael Norman run what he's physically capable of in both the 200 and 400, and let the time be whatever it is.

              I find young Mr. Knighton to be a more exciting prospect. But a match up at the USA champs with Knighton, Norman, Lyles, Kerley and Bednarek will be spectacular.

                The first 7 foot high jump by a woman. The first sub 12 100 hurdles, Athing Mu 1:50.xx, and a 21 foot pole vault by Mondo.

                  Ten years ago, I would have said sub-2. But I think that will happen in a real race in my lifetime.

                      My history with Norman began with his sophomore season at Vista Murietta, so it's that connection as much as anything else. Knighton leaves me cold, honestly.

                            Pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean "Knighton leaves you cold"?

                              The 17yo boy ran

                              19.84
                              19.88
                              19.93
                              20.02
                              20.04

                              But he only got 4th at the Olympics - nothing to see here, move along . . .
