    I hope that he runs 400 at Berlin GL then doubles in 400/200 at USAT&F. He
    needs races.

    He improved from 20.71 (Adidas) to 20.27 (Reebok). I know that the conditions were better, but he improved by 0.44 sec. while Martin only improved by 0.19 sec.
    Really now!!!?? is a thread dedicated to this guy really worth it? Is this any incentive for the other top ten US 400m guys next to Wariner and Merrit or the other hard working 200m guys next to Tyson?

    They don't have a 400m race this yr, just the 100 & 300 meter races.

    I could see him in that 300m race though.
    I hope so........

    I wouldnt mind seeing him use the 100 as a warm up race either.......assuming its before the 300.

    Last year he ran that 44.70 after running a 10.28 in the 100.[/quote:3rj292lj]

    He ran 45.75 in Feb in Australia, I gotta image he's in a tad better shape than that effort by now. And yes, that 44.70 was very easy for him last yr, he looked great in that effort.

    His performances have fallen off, since he has not been healthy since 2006. Thats the real thing.

    In 07 he dislocated his knee cap, in 08 he had chipped bones in his ankle.

    I'd like to see X have 2 consistent injury free season and figure out a way to train in Baton Rogue again............
    I just noticed on the Reebok Grand Prix website that "X-Man" is entered in the 200 vs. Gay, Spearmon and Wariner.

    I think that "X-Man" should run 400 because of injuries at 200, but we'll have a good idea where he stands at 200 after that race.
    I actually agree, he did well here last yr in his 400m race, which wasn't too far after his 100m race earlier that day....

    My pleasure. I feel the same way about "texas_speed" who puts much useful information on this message board.

    I believe Neville is off to a slow start this year.
    I agree. IAAF lists 89 names in 400, but Neville isn't there. Neville's 46.26 at Baie Mahault on May 1 is the fastest that I can find. He is about 100th in the world for 2009.

    he has massive talent in terms of his power, max speed and overall strength.
    what he seems to lack at this point is effecient sprinting mechanics, relaxation at top speed and good execution of each phase of his races. and, he has had injury problems. seems erratic.
    what's bloody amazing is that he's run as fast as he has with marginal technique.
    lets hope his coach, supposedly Brooks Johnson, is actually teaching X-man the physics of sprinting - including how to relax, be more fluid and be able to harness power instead of fighting himself.
    not convinced that 400 is the best application of his talent. i say 200, if he can learn how to sprint and stay healthy.
    lets hope he's getting some good guidance and he's got the right mentality to take to the next level.
    I agree, but in 2009 U.S. has lots of depth in 2009, none in 400 after Merritt and Wariner.
    Look at Adidas results--lots of 200 depth, none in 400. Dave Johnson has Larry and Williamson in 2nd & 3rd. Gay has run faster than Williamson for 400 in 2009.[/quote]

    I guess the question is which should he focus on to try and make the US team to Berlin?

    He's been running 400s since indoor and has had a few decent splits outdoors. But his deuce hasnt looked as good as of late. Not to mention the 400 team looks makeable. He needs to make the team and the 400 looks like his best opportunity this year, IMO. But I agree historically he's extremely talented in the 200.
