      Does anyone know whether or not Ford did spring football this year? I would have expected him to have run sub-10 already based on his indoor season.

        He ran outdoors on five different weekends, including two multi-day meets in April (ACC and Penn). Can you do that if you're running spring football?

          We've been down that road before: I never expect anybody to run anything based on indoor seasons. The 60 and the 100 are just too different, particularly when you're talking about a shorter sprinter with a good start.

          Ford's 5-9; only one sprinter under 5-10 made the World Rankings last year.

            Can Bingham switch from GRB and run for the USA?

              He just switched to GB last year.

                I started to post the question "Why would any 400m runner in his right mind want to switch to USA affiliation?" And then I thought about it. While he will have a much easier time making World and Olympic teams running for GBR, if he can make the USA team, he will have a much better chance of a medal, even a gold one, because of the relay.

                  But Ford was better than Trindon Holliday indoors, and he's only 5-5 and has already run 10.01 outdoors.

                    I asked because his bio said he was born in North Carolina, guessing his folks are from GRB and he figured, like tandfan alluded to, he would have a better shot at making the team over there than here.

                      Michael's history/background is discussed here:

                      I'll also note that yesterday he was running on a track named the same as the one he ran on in HS and... for an alum of his HS- Irwin Belk.
