  • Brussels Start Lists

    Anyone located any start lists for Brussels yet?

  • #2
    They were slow last year (i recall this as I attended and couldn't get startlists until the morning of the meet almost).

    Presumably they will wait 'til after Lausanne on Tuesday.

    Meet site is here: http://www.sport.be/belgacommemorialvandamme/2008/eng/

        Weather forecast -- high Friday 20C (68F), 30% possible rain Friday evening. Not the best conditions for that 100m.

                He:s a cut above the Powell class. Powell demonstrated (for the second time) to UK folks that running a very fast 100m in undesirable conditions could be achieved. If Bolt can stay ahead of Powell - and keep his legs from getting stale, he:s got as good a shot now whilst on a hot streak.

                  And the dynamics will also be more favorable in Brussels, a large and enthusiastic crowd and a fantastic starter field. I don't think a WR is likely, but I'm not going to be surprised by anything Bolt does.

                    He seems to be a cut above the everyone-who-has-ever-lived class. I can't say that anything he does will surprise me, but if it's in the 15-18C range and raining, a WR would be quite remarkable.

                      Actually, I don't think he's far ahead of Powell in a non-championship setting. He was beaten in a close race in Stockholm. And Asafa's 9.72 is intrinsically better than anything Usain did this year outside of the OG.

                        I concur; if AP beats Bolt again (and I think that it is possible, especially since AP has run quite well in poorish conditions) he gets back to even, I think (2-2); those would be Bolts only losses. This would make AP #2 despite his Beijing failure. As gh suggested, Dix is also in the mix for an upgrade in a battle with Thompson. Gay is a 'dark horse'; he also has run well in mediocre conditions (although not with an injury) and might upset the rankings applecart, especially if he pulled a BIG surprise and won.

                          Bolt also set the new WR while not in peak shape and those 9.83 into a slight headwind in Z├╝rich right after the Olympics were also very impressive. I agree though that Asafa Powell in non-championship meets has what it takes to beat anyone, even Bolt right now.
