  • Brussels Blowout

    Despite its proximity (or maybe because of it) I think this Brussels meet Friday will see many marks better than Paris.

    100 - Capel, Chambers, Gatlin, B Wms
    200 - Capel, Gatlin, JJJ, Patton, B Wms
    800 - S-G, Borz, Bungei, Milaud, Sepeng (this is a better line-up than WC and now everyone knows about S-G!)
    St - Everyone's back
    10K - Geb, Kamathi, S Kipketer and KENNEDY!
    110H - USA and Liu
    100 - Arron, Block, Edwards, Gaines, Sturrup, and Kelli
    800 - Ayhan vs. Mutola!
    400H - Glover and Pech
    HJ - everyone
    TJ - everyone + Aldama

    I think many (!) world ranking spots are still on the line.

    Let's hope for a sub-20 in the 200 ....

      Kennedy is interesting. Ran 28 flat earlier this year while in 13:42 shape. Has since run 13:21 - should break 28. This race may be a determining factor in whether he runs the 5k or 10k at next years trials. I'd guess he'll run 27:30-27:40. Go Bob!

        Don't forget Mutua in M800?

          OK, now I'm about to break some cyber-law:

          We've had all this talk about how bad the 200 runners are this year. And how the Paris track wasn't all that slow. And how the sky is falling, etc. We haven't had a sub-20 200 this year. I will BET that someone WILL break 20 in Brussels! Even odds! Who wants a piece of that action?! [void where prohibited :-)]

            Wasn't Kennedy's 13:21 this year good enough for the "A" standard. Where was he in Paris.

              He didn't reach the 'A' standard and even if he had he needed another athlete to get the 'A' standard in order for him to go since he didn't beat Torres who had the 'B' standard at nationals.

                No idea if euosport or five live will cover with audio. Providing that sort of information before the fact is not their strong suit.

                      Re: Brussels Blowout

                      Yeah, it shouldn't be forgotten that Powell looked very good in running 10.05 in the Paris heats, equalling Carl Lewis's '83 mark as the fastest first round in WC history. Then he got yanked in the Drummond brouhaha in the quarters, so he may well go down as one of those "what if....?" guys. (note to Brutal: you can post that question in 10 years, but not before)

                        Re: Brussels Blowout

                        I had seen his heat and had remarked on how easy he looked beating Kim Collins and running 10.05. His is now faster than his big brother Donovan Powell and has better running form. Hopefully he will stay focussed and be ready for Athens. By the way he is a totally homegrown product. Product of the new High Performance Centre where Bolt is apparently going to be now.

                            Looks like our friends to the north can now lay claim to the best female distance runner in North America in Babcock - on a roll that one is - is that a Canadian NR?
