    I'm a bit late to this, but before his ill-fated 2017 campaign, Bolt lost to Gatlin only once. It was at Rome in June 2013, by 0.01 seconds. It was arguably the only loss of Bolt's career when he appeared to be fit and really trying, although it was still early in the season. Bolt and Gatlin largely avoided each other until the major championships.

    I dunno...21.55 in no wind with the Worlds in Eugene coming up where the races will be spaced out more. Give her a tail wind and I think that record is in jeopardy.

    Yep, a bird in hand is always worth more than two in the bush. Her sponsor with want her wearing their shoes during the World Championships and perhaps even run a few commercials during the Championships. Her stock is probably already close to maxing out and on the flip- side, what if she has a major injury during the Championships?

    Good point, 18.99s. I trust that she has put some thought into this.

    Works the other way also, I would have thought she'd be in a better position to negotiate after the world championships when she will have likely won a medal.

    If she failed to win a medal her negotiating power would drop. Better to sign before the championships based on expectations of a medal.

    Surprised Steiner's getting distracted on this issue now. Surely better to get a medal first and then negotiate afterwards.

    I'm with you on this! If SJ has already ran 21.55 - nearly as fast as ETH last year in Tokyo - she is going to drop a scary scary time in Eugene in a couple of weeks. The world record watch is officially on for me.

    The bottom line is that the people who know aren't talking and the people who are talking don't know. However, one thing that's notable is that Puma hasn't posted anything about Steiner. For all we know she may not have even talked to Puma. Also note that none of the sources for this stuff would fit my definition of a journalist, they're just internet clowns.
    Well said
