  • Zurich 400M

    I'm taking a break from picking races for awhile, much to the delight of many I'm sure. I would be awful happy though if JW bounces back with a solid performance. I don't think JW will be trying to blast it unless he feels it and it just happens in the race. I think he'll just try to wrap up the season with some solid performances and get to work on next season.

    I've been away from this forum since well before Beijing OG...what do you think was JW's problem in the 400 OG final...physical, mental or combo?

      Startlist in Zurich:

      Christopher Brown (BAH)
      Ricardo Chambers (JAM)
      Lashawn Merritt (USA)
      David Neville (USA),
      Jeremy Wariner (USA)
      Johan Wissman (SWE)
      Kamghe Gaba (GER)

      I'm tipping Merritt will contnue his dominance over Wariner for the remainder of the season... but Wariner will get a lot closer than in Beijing.

      they didn't run a 400m at last year's meet... have they ran one on the new track yet? Is it as fast as the one Reynolds ran has WR on? That one has seen 4 sub-44 performances.

        :shock: @ Gaba being in that field, good for him.

        AS, it's one of the best tracks in the world, they wanted to keep the "magic" going and invested a lot of money in a highly modern track. What's really special about the Letzigrund are the conditions off the track though, it's a stadium also used for soccer, but I recall many athletes praising the new facilities in and around the stadium last year. It's been raining last year, hopefully that will not happen again this time.

          Hey! Where's Bolt?! I know they have enough money in that safe to get him to run this!

            JW's performance in the 400 semifinals and the 4x400 final proves that it wasn't physical.

              Why? If Lagat was fine today (and was ok for the 5000 heat), would that mean that he was fine for the 5000 final?

              It might be the case, but you do not have enough to go on. I think that if you look at the race you will see that he looked better in semi than in the final and that difference was not a last 70m thing (also, the wind-down made the difference look greater).
