    Remember Berlin last yr 44.02 to like 44.03 or something like that! The only thing, all of the wins Merritt had over Wariner thereafter had a bigger margin of victory.


    This is a new yr and thus neither 2 athletes are the same. One went from being the hunted to being the hunter and the other is now the hunted. Will be interesting to say the least!
    That's not true at all. Merritt won their last race by the hair on his chinny chin chin (.01).

    Both you and Merritt are stating one and the same regarding this.

    Merritt has maintained that he's not chasing times, but believes it will take about 43,5-43,6 for him to win in Berlin. That statement is worth consideration, because it excludes Wariner from improving at the championships.
    I'm not suggesting LaShawn will be or is chasing times, I am of the opinion you run your best race and times take care of themselves. It's just my take on what times I feel he's capable of running.

    This coming from the same person who said Wariner would never lose any race of importance less than a year ago.
    And??? so damn what! Unlike you, I don't hate on a runner because of the school he attended!!! I will say it again, Wariner will win in a close race!!!
    So why am I a Michael Johnson fan? Or Bayano Kamani fan? Or Robert Griffin III fan???

    The notion that I don't like someonbecause of the school they attend is approaching the logic of Paul Henry and Sportfanx1[/quote:2s0lyjgu]

    Unfortunately those kind of people do exist, sad but true. But in future make stupid posts and leave me out.

    Knite they are talking about Wariner.

    Thank you, I misread that. I think Wariner can drop around 43.5-ish or so, 43.4mid/high. Though he may have been able to run that last yr as it never appeared to be his fitness that was an issue last yr.

    Merritt maybe be able to drop a bomb, seriouisly, I wouldn't peg a 43.5, He may drop 43.4. I don't think the WR is possible yet, but I can see something around 43.38-43.55. his body is really familiar now running 43's. And he hasn't had monstrous drops, maybe he is due for one...

    Though I see both not being outside of .20 of each other.
    I'm thinking along those lines as well.

    If JW can get back to his 2007 form we should see a pretty fast top 2 for times in Berlin. The runnerup may end up with the fastest 2nd place finish ever.
    JW does appear to be rounding into his pre 2008 form, I think both him and LaShawn will certianly push each other and others who attempt to hang with them, to some vey nice times. X-man could be one of those others,.

    I can see that also.
