    44.69 is not the time I was hoping for. I'm starting to wonder...

      I was hoping for something around 44.3, and 44.69 is not too far outside that. What are the conditions in Osaka right now?

        Perfect. 80 degrees and very little wind. The thing that bugs me about his time is that he ran 44.02 in this same race in 2007.

          Did he shut it down with 20 to go, as is his wont?

            Was he easing up?

                  I agree with MJR.

                    44.69 is not a bad time, but even Wariner himself was predicting low 44s.
                    On the other hand, I am sure that the jet lag from traveling to Asia has to be a factor. It's a 12 or 13 hr difference, so day is night and night is day.
                    I think his next race will be a better indicator of his current fitness.

                      Never knew 44.69 could get so much negative attention.

                        Impressive PR by 2nd place Kanemaru at 45.1. As for JW, does he still have plans to run the 200m nationals .
                        ... nothing really ever changes my friend, new lines for old, new lines for old.

                          Wow. Exactly two people have run under 45,00 this season. One is the current Olympic champion, the other one is a former champion, the returning world champion and runner-up in last year's biggie in Beijing. There are only 0,19 seconds separating the two of them. I'd say 44,69 was rather decent, no?

                            44.69 seems on par with his past May performances (sources: tilastopaja.com, alltime-athletics.com, TFN). And most of the times below that were a tenth or so faster were run in mid to late May, not early May like his Osaka run.

                              You forgot the 44.12 JW ran at Waco on 4/22/06. So in both '06 and '07 Wariner had run low 44 by the first week of May. From past experience it seems the ones who run fast early are in the best shape to win championships. Even Merritt ran 44.34 at Gualalope last year. And JW ran 44.56 at Waco last year on 4/19. So already he's behind last year pace and we all know what happened last year.
