    No the wind is not a factor at any distance over 200.
    Of course it is.
    For statistical purposes its not.

      it's easy (well "easy") to be killer in the first 100.... what matters is that he looked killer in the LAST 100. wow.

      Jeremy going to be having his hands full.
      Speaking of the Gazelle when does he run next - Nationals? if so why not sooner? He has not shown much this far I hope he is ready for LM.
      According to his website, Nationals is his next race. In a recent interview he said there will be a number of races in Europe between Nationals and Worlds. I expect him to bust a fast 400m somewhere about 2-3 weeks before Worlds - something in the 43.5-43.7 range.[/quote:2y2oh21g]

      At this point I just want him to get to 44 flat territory. Also I was hoping he would run all six Golden League races - Oh Well. :cry:[/quote:2y2oh21g]

      He's not running a 43x this year!, he can get down to a 44high and that would be saying a lot. Not sure where this 43.5-7 is coming from though.

          I think LaShawn will hit a mid 43 this year, 43.6 ish, putting his 300 in perspective, yeah he should run 43 something come Berlin.

            I'm think more along the lines of 43.55

Yeah he got 3rd, but will this guy ever run a complete race. He just never runs the 1st 100 of a 200 or 300.
              Spearmon depends on his finishing kick wayyyyyyyy too much.

                  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,.

                      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.

                          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.

                              This coming from the same person who said Wariner would never lose any race of importance less than a year ago.
