      Yeah I may have to wait for lists on IAAF.org

        The real explanation is that even though they may be listed as such on the Z site, those aren't "start lists" they're "entry lists."

          They got the baton nearly even with Powell in the lead.
          Then Powell extended it.
          The times were what, 37.32 to 37.62?
          I think the race wouldve been even closer had the U.S. been in.
          I still say Thompson isnt where he was in Beijing.

            Powell got the baton ahead of Thompson. I've watched the tape several times. As I said Powell won the leg.

              I still say Thompson isnt where he was in Beijing.--- Thompson was in a car accident in December, but his 4th place 9.93 is good for coming back this year.
              He helped T&T to a new NR of 37.62, which is faster than what they did in Beijing!!!!!

              Powell got the baton ahead of Thompson. I've watched the tape several times. As I said Powell won the leg.[/quote:1bszmozx] That's very true, Asafa was ahead of Thompson, but I wonder what their splits were.

                His efforts of finishing 4th in 9.93 and setting a new 4x100 NR of 37.62 are both noteworthy.[/quote:342vv3u0]
                As a Baton Rouge resident, I knew about the accident when it happened. It set him back a lot further than most people are aware of. He was wearing a neck-brace at one time, and he couldn't get back to regular training regimen for a couple of months. All things considered, I think he's proved that his silver medal in Beijing was no fluke, a la Kim Collins, and he's younger than Powell and Gay.

                  Thompson proved himself as a championship performer, with an injury free season he could get down to low 9.8's and some of the most impressive first 60m's ever.

                  I think he can get 60m WR if he wanted to, but so could a few athletes.

                  What was his first 60m in Beijing??? If he improves by a tenth you can take a couple of 100ths off that.

                        Powell's split was 8.73.. Thompson got his guts cut out by Powell. I think he was a 8.9x or something. not bad for running with injury.

                          Do you know Bolt's split?

                            Powell has normally looked sensational post-WC/Olympics.

                            Obviously no one here knows how much the injury has effected his training the last week!

                            Without any injury doubts I would think he could provide a good challenge to Bolt, who has probably taken his foot off the gas post games :-)
