    Japanese did not handle the wind well.
    I expected hardy to win easily and he did
    Wish Murphy could have run but if all goes to plan, two years from now he should be a MONSTER
    why don't people pronounce vowels anymore

      I hear that Hardy jogged through the line... :lol:

      A pretty dominant performance in tough conditions.

        Spot-on with your prediction. Great 46.86 PB in semis, 47.20 in final to finish fourth, just 0.05 away from a medal. :?

              Fourth on the world all-time youth list, and the best youth performance in 14 years.

                There is an Andreas Duplantis competing for Sweden in the PV. It may be a long shot, but... any relation to Greg?

                  Actually fifth, according to IAAF's lists, but just 0.1 off Obea Moore's WYR. Is James intending to compete in Berlin?

                    I kind of didn't want to be correct with my prediction, i could just see it happening due to it happens a lot in the 400.

                    Lets see what Kiriani James has got in the 200, maybe the American can push him to a quick time or at least give him a race. If he goes below 20.6 this Kiriani James is an extreme talent, which he clearly is anyways, but you only get American 400 runners even close to 20secs and he looks on track to be getting there while he's a junior, if he runs a quick 200. Leg speed is still the most impressive thing as youth and juniors.

                        I found the answer myself. The thing that got me wondering was the national allegiance, but it turns out Mrs. Duplantis is a Swede, so I guess the kids have dual citizenship.

                          Hes pretty much the same age as Bolt when he did the world youths. Bolt ran 20.1ish and 45.3 in the 400 semi's or heat. So a good 200 from and he's Bolt-esque. I think he will go sub 45 if he goes Berlin. I also think he will stick with the 200 n 400 being better at the 400 rather than the 200 like Bolt was. Scary.

                          How tall is he??? from the pics he seems quite twiggy which is a good sign

                                In the midst of the James hype (deservingly so), let's not forget that the 46.22 Mance run is pretty darn good too.
