      Have they mismarked the 1200 split line in Philly this weekend? In the college race I thought the splits were a bit pedestrian and in the OD race they are downright slow considering the talent.

          1:44.02 was even better for KD, and the running start does not help in the 800 nearly so much.

          As for the person that thought that at least Manzano should do the 1600 and Jager the 1200 the splits indicate the 1600 was the better leg or the split at 1200 was wrong.

            The DMR splits were all FAT from the start/finish line...so I think they are pretty accurate

              Ryan Gregson (4:03.93) AUS

              This might quiet some of the "German can't carry Gregson's water" discussion, although after the 1:49 leg maybe they were toast (also, did he run a 1:55/2:08 in a futile attempt to catch up?).

                  The funny thing with Scherer's personal record sheet is that ALL of his current best times have been achieved running around the track at Oregon: 20,89; 32,77; 45,19; 1.14,41; 1.46,11

                    I agree because his last 400 was on Feb. 28. I hope that he has no more hamstring issues or other injuries because all he needs to make the U.S. WCh team at 400 is more races IMHO.

                    Nine more international 400 races are scheduled between May 1 & June 17.
                    He needs to run at least half of them to be ready for USAT&F because he has run only 11 400 races in 2007, 2008 & 2009.

                    I've seen three of his races on TV this year. His problem is the last 100 in all of them. I assume that he is training properly because of his times in 2008 (10.00 & 44.70) and in 2007 (19.92).

                    I assume that a few more 400 races will prepare him to finish his 400s strongly. IF he does make the team, he can run 200s & 100s in July & after WCh. I hope that he challenges Wariner & Merritt by June then challenges Gay & Bolt by July.

                      Not sure he should run the 100 this season with the hamstring issues and the distraction of running all 3 events. It's not easy to manage all 3 mentally or physically.

                      I for one would like to see him settle on what he's best at...the 200 and the 400.

                        I agree. Because of Bolt "X-Man" should concentrate on 400 in 2009. Heats for 200 are two hours before 400 final, so he should enter 200, but only run it only in case of a 400 dq in heat or semi. He could run 4 x 100 & 200 in July for speed work IF he has NO hamstring issues.

                        2010 will be a good year to concentrate on 200, IF he is healthy.

                          Did not see the race but looks like it was too bad the USA didn't switch their anchors.

                              I was just thinking the same thing looking at my eTrack Newsletter. Possibly the Kenyans just wouldn't have allowed themselves to be outkicked, but swap Lomong for Jager and you get 9:20.89.
