    Osaka (TV-Analysis www.fgs.uni-halle.de)

    USA: 10.43-9.29-9.13 Gay-9.21: change effectivity 0.28: 37.78
    JAM: 10.66-.9.16 Bolt-9.44-8,84: change effectivity 0.21:37.89

    Stuttgart 1993 (www.fgs.uni-halle.de)

    USA: 10.44-8.96 Cason-9.43-8.92: change ffectivity 0.35: 37.40
    How do these numbers compare with:
    Nesta Carter (10.41) Michael Frater (9.01)
    Usain Bolt (8.98) Asafa Powell (8.70)

    Or: what is change effectivity?
    I would suggest change effectivity is the distance that's won converted in time by passing the baton from one athlete to an other athlete.

    Sum individual times minus change effectivity = real relay time.
    The numbers you gave are apparantly "net" times.

    Shame on you Trinidad.
    While we believe that our athletes have done their part in promoting and advertising our nation on the world stage, we cannot say the same for those vested with the authority for the governance of our nation's sport. We say this against the background of the revelation that it was our 1976 Olympic gold medalist Hasely Crawford who had to take a bank loan to partly finance our track team to the world games. What utter madness! There can be no excuse for such an occurrence by those in authority in sports in this country. Yet when our athletes return government will attempt to make political capital over their achievements.

    True. It made me feel even more sorry about his DQ in the individual 100. He might have challenged for a place in the final. Possibly even go sub-10?

    very interesting. however, don't some runners often run much faster in the relay than in the individual races, specially the anchor?

    Except I still say the USA had their hands full with Trinidad. There's nothing hypothetical about that 37.62 and it's a fast time - faster than the Canadians ran in Atlanta, remember that? I say the USA take bronze.
    Stephen Francis said in an interview on TVJ that he would not have allowed Asafa to run in the final if the Americans had made it through. The thinking was that an injured Asafa would quite likely have had to work too hard and might have aggravated his injury. With only the Trinis to worry about Franno thought Asafa would be working at 80% or thereabouts. As it turned out, Bolt was less than his best and the Trinis were closer than expected, so Asafa had to run flat. Luckily, he survived and ther were ill effects. But you have to wonder, what if the US had qualified? Without Asafa, you could be looking at 37.60 or slower.
    Mi tink Steve Francis runs tings in Jamaica.

    • Jamaica - 2.13s
      Trinidad - 2.44s
      U.K. - 2.38s
      Japan - 2.34s

    As you can see, Trinidad had the best exchanges by running 2.44 seconds faster than the sum of their season bests. If the U.S. could have had a 2.44 time differential in the last two Olympics, they would have run 37.15 in 2004 and 37.02 in 2008. Based on years of observation, I can say that the best colleges typically have a time differential approaching three seconds when they get it right. The French of the early 1990's exceded three seconds.

    Note: For one of the Japanese runners, I took half of his 200 season best since he had no 100 time on the IAAF's performance list.

    I got accused on another board of making up conspiracy theories by a dude who was making up conspiracy theories (if you don't agree with them you're in on it! Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!) so not wanting to be left out of the party I'm going to make up a conspiracy theory! Remember that film based on the Michael Crichton book where Wesley Snipes and Sean Connery are detectives called to a sky scraper to investigate a murder committed by some evil Japanese business men? Well they eventually have to prove that the CCTV footage of the murderer was doctored with technological skulduggery. I'm just saying.... I think we might get a Scooby-Doo ending to this after all. Somebody needs to find the tape where Shawn Crawford whips off his latex mask and is revealed to be Harry Aikines-Ayreetey. The incriminating footage was actually shot six months ago on an abandoned ice skate rink near Crystal Palace. The USA really would have got away with it if it wasn't for those meddling Brits!

    Except I still say the USA had their hands full with Trinidad. There's nothing hypothetical about that 37.62 and it's a fast time - faster than the Canadians ran in Atlanta, remember that? I say the USA take bronze.
    Trinidad won't get any easier either especially if Darrel Brown gets back up to speed. He has had his problems.
