        Yesterday it was 83 in Madison; today it was close 43 at the same time of day and raining harder in the morning and lightly the rest of the day. This weather is often imported from the west -- Iowa. [added actual data for Des Moines]

          Why was Wariner not at the Penns with the rest of the elite sprinters?

            Even raining and cold weather I would have expected atleast a 44.7ish.

                No, I think they are exceptional athletes who train to run fast. Sorry if a 45.06 doesnt move me especially when that person's PR is 43.44.

                  Give the guy a break. It was 49 degrees, windy and raining. His time was .6x off the track record by MJ. Considering the conditions, I think it's a pretty decent time. Look at what the other competitors did in the race.

                      Good grief. If I am Jeremy Wariner's coach, manager, agent or anyone remotely benefitting from the rest of his season and it is 47 degrees and the track is wet, if he runs anything remotely approaching full speed I would be pissed.

                        Wariner wasn't alone in the race, no? The runner-up finished how many steps, strides, metres, seconds behind Wariner, who had to run in the same conditions?

                          LOL! Wariner did look a little like Little on the 2nd turn. Wariner cruised down the backstretch and then hit the turn, kicked it in and sprinted down the homestretch. During the interview Wariner stated he would be running the 200 at Nationals and used this race to work on the turn.

                            He look'd great winning his race in spite of the conditions. Coming as close as he did to breaking 45 seconds is a remarkable performance nonetheless considering what he and the others had to compete in.
