    I think JW has been sandbagging. Hart is a magician. LM could be surprised to find himself a meter back at 300 and not making up any ground in the homestretch. It'll be close and they'll both close better than anyone else in the field. JW by a nose!!!!

        I'm OK with that too.

          Is Gil Roberts ready for an Otis Harris style breakout or is it really a lottery for the bronze medal? (Assuming Wariner and Merritt don't keep running 44.50)

            I don't think JW has been sandbagging. He missed time due to his injury and since then he's been trying to get his fitness back. The question is with so few races how sharp will he be for 3 rounds.

              LM has run practically the same about of 400s this year. Counting heats in trials, LM has run about 2 or 3 more 400s then JW. Both are undefeated at 400.

                Got a sneaky feeling Wariner is gonna drop a high 43 and beat lashawn who will have nothing left

                        Quow is too low. He is in the mix for Bronze unlike Collazo and Djhone.

                          Merritt has looked comfortable this season. Wariner hasn't looked as comfortable. In fact through 300m Wariner has run close to even with many of his competitors. If he runs like that in Berlin, he could lose by half a second.

                            Renny has to run the first 200m, I know the kid and thats his biggest issue.

                              For the bronze it will come down to the runners who didn't have to expand as much energy in the rounds. But we know some will, just trying to make finals and get a decent lane assignment.

                              We'll see who is fit, I think Gil's inexperience might hurt him, preventing an American sweep again, but by the same token, he may just be there in the end.
