    The best part is that as the conclusion of it, there will be an 800m race among them. Predicted order of finish and times:

    1. Wariner 1:39.99 WR !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    2. Geb 1:44.44 (leading at the 400 in 50.5)
    3. Gay 2:02 (went out slow, but last 200 in 19.2!)
    4. Vlasic 2:18 (they had trouble reading her time, because she jumped over the camera's frame at the finish)
    5. Felix 3:07 (ran the first 200 in 21.82, and kinda died after that)
