    Why no "slower than 43.50" option? And what if I think he'll end up in the 43.18-43.29 bracket?

      Wariner does have the potential to go under 43.40 but the chances of it happening are small. It would take great weather, a great track, a great field as well as his conditioning at the time.
      The best thing Wariner has going for him is is age, he may be able to compete at an ultra-high level for 6 to 9 years, and he may turn in a good one at anytime during those years.
      Another factor could be whoever else develops during this time, it may be another American or the tall young guy from Jamaica (Why cant I think of his name now) or who knows someone from Spain may come out of nowhere.

        Time plus training plus health and Wariner is a threat to the world record. He reminds me of Quincy Watts when he finished his career at USC. Wariner foot speed will be there (or already there) like Watts in the short sprints and with Hart's training, I know his endurance/strength is there. If he stays injury free for the next few years, he could brake the record. But until then, I think that he will run a 43.50.

            Given that he just ran a 43.2 (43.1?) relay leg in frigging EARLY APRIL, that just might be his third or fourth fastest time of the summer...

              I hadn't heard he ran 43.1-43.2...of course, I don't have the time to follow muchof those matters anymore. Too busy with my own career and coaching at the D3 collegiate level to pay much attention to much else. My predictions regarding his improvement this summer were based on my own assumptions regarding anticipated improvement in his maturity and his recent 200m times reported here.

                Scroll down to bottom of the page for the video...it's especially impressive considering that he had to run wide while gobbling up a very, very good sub 45-runner...

                  Yep, I thought that the extra distance was the equivalent of another 0.1-0.2 seconds; still not sub-43 but how many early-April sub-43 have there been? By the way, I do not remember if it was breezy or not; if it was then the time is even more impressive.
