  • Darvis PATTON among the favourites ?

    Unfortunately still too much undercovered by
    the medias, this extremely talented athlete I
    admire is to my mind a clear favourite among
    the many candidates for the 200m throne:
    His progresses:
    2000: 10"22/20"29
    2001: 10"16/20"31
    2002: 10"14/20"12
    2003: 10"00/20"03
    2004: ????
    He has already beaten all the top 200m runners
    in the World.
    If healthy, I see him set a regular 19"80 time
    next Summer.
    What is his best time for the 400m?

    Wow, rewind on that clear favorite comment. Not even sure if he'll make the team.

      I'm not sure about his 400m PR but he has jumped 8.12m (+0.1m/s) on 31st of March 2001 in Arlington, TX.
      He has jumped over 8m on other occassions aswell;
      2000: 8.04m (+2.0m/s) on 25th March 2000 Baton Rogue.
      2002: 8.04m (+1.8m/s) on 1st of September 2002 Padova.

        It really wasn't until 2002 that it became apparent that Patton would focus on the LJ. Many people don't realize how talented the guy is:

        100m 9.97 (2.1) 10.00
        200m 20.03
        LJ - 8.12
        TJ - 15.84

        Quite the all-around talent.
