    IMO, it's very possible that lack of focus was a major contributor to some of his injuries. In my experience, not taking care of yourself properly will eventually catch up with you, usually in the form of injury. If this is the case, then it's also very possible that lack of focus is the main problem here. Either way, I hope things start shaping up for him. I always hate to see a great talent not perform close to their potential, regardless of the reason.
    Does anyone know when "X-Man" will race again? IF he has minor hamstring problems, many races are scheduled in hot weather in the next six weeks, so will he choose those races?
    "X-Man" ran well in the last two weeks of April, so why did he not run at Guadeloupe and why is he not entered at Kingston or at any meets in the 2nd week of May? In 2007 & 2008 he also failed to race in the first two weeks of May then was injured in the 200 at nationals in both years.

      Brooks Johnson has stated that Carter is both over and not over his injury ("yes and no"). An article written on Carter four weeks ago stated that he is still feeling the effects of his 2008 injury/surgery. Could either be precautions at this stage or races during this stretch simply are not on the radar.

        Thanks. I'll stop trolling every meet for "X-Man's" next entry and hope that he is ready for his annual May "debut" at Adidas.

        In 1993 Michael Johnson skipped May meets, ran 20.5x at Pre then won USAT&F in Eugene with 43.75.

          X being an American is part of it; X winning four races at the NCAAs (Jesse Owens territory) followed by a then-second fastest 200m ever at age 20 is part of it; X subsequently getting busted or almost busted by the law numerous times for dumbshit stuff is a big part of it.
