    I don't care who wins; I just want everyone to have good clean fast exchanges so the real race can develop.

      Ivory WIlliams and Leroy Dixon are rumored to being brought back over but I can't confirm it or deny it.

      Gay, Rodgers, Patton, Spearmon, Crawford, Trammell

        Mullings ran 10.01 in Rome this year. Bledman has a 10.10.

          Shouldn't France be on this list - their 100m guys have run 10.04, 10.06 and 10.10 in the last couple of years, and France have a history of putting together competitive relays teams.

            If the U.S. can make it to the finals, then they have a good shot at the gold if they run the following: Crawford, Patton, Gay, Rogers. In that order.
            Making it to the final is the big "if".

              I am just hoping that this year this field of professional athletes excepting Japan display baton exchanging and relay running atleast a tad bit better than class four at champs. Last year at the Olys the exchanges were BAADD.

                Cuba has not entered a team.Apparently a couple of their sprinters were injured at the C.A.C.Championships in Havana.

                  How in Christ would it be a tall order for the USA to make the final...unless youre referring to batons????

                    Clearly he is referring to batons.

                      Good point, what did they not enter a team or something? How can they be ranked behind some of these teams?

                        Jamaica wins easily in another world record.

                        Final should be Bolt, ASafa, Frater and Mullings.

                        WR in 37.05. The US in a distant second in 37.36
                        Cows need love too

                          37.36 isn't a shabby time. But this is all dependent on 1. If Asafa runs in the relay (because I can see the JAAA using that as punishment) and 2. If Gay is healthy enough to compete. If Asafa doesn't run, the Americans would be slight favorites IMO. If Gay doesn't run, you can forget USA bringing home the gold.


                          .......and then watch Great Britian stun us all and win another gold............. :wink:

                            Kool heads will prevail and all the MVP athletes will run their individual events as well as the relays.

                              I'm fine with that. If there is no WR, I'd prefer the Amis win, but if the Jammies win in a WR, and the Amis get an AR, I'm down wid dat!
