  • The USA has never...

    The IAAF published very detailed statistics about the world championships in T&F. Here are some of the interesting facts that I picked up about the US performances.

    USA (men) has never...
    Fail to score the highest total points and are likely to continue in Deagu
    Fail to medal in the 110h and are likely to continue this streak
    Been worse that fifth in the 100m and Dix and/or Gatlin should maintain this record.
    Been outside the three classic sprint finals (100&200&400) and should continue this year
    Been outside the SP top 8 and should definitely do so this year
    Fail to place in the top 8 in the LJ - with only 1 American in the top 15 maybe this year the streak will break
    Place in the first two in the 800 and are not likely to do it this time
    Has never placed in the top 5 in the 10K - maybe this time?
    Never won a medal in the 3000 SC - and will not win it this time
    Never won a medal in the HT - Kibwe Johnson can change this record
    fail to reach the final in the 400h only once (2001) and are unlikely to repeat this embarrassment
    In spite of all the great decathletes never won two medals - Hardee and Eaton may change this
    Been in the top 8 in the 20K walk (the only event) - I offer 1:100 that this will not change
    Lost when they finish the 100*4 - can they pass the baton so they can lose to Jamaica?

    USA (women) has never:
    Been outside the top 4 in the 100m - Jeter should keep this record intact
    Won a medal in the 800 - maybe this time Vessey and company?
    Won a medal in the 5000 - and will not win this time
    Won a gold in the HJ and will not win this time
    Made it to the last 8 in TJ and will not make it this time
    Won a medal in the throws - Camarena-Williams we are waiting
    Made it to the top 8 in the JT - maybe Patterson but unlikely

    Re: The USA has never...

    Fail to score the highest total points and are likely to continue in Deagu - AGREE
    Fail to medal in the 110h and are likely to continue this streak - VERY LIKELY
    Been worse that fifth in the 100m and Dix and/or Gatlin should maintain this record. - IF THAT HAPPENS IT COULD DISASTER FOR THE RELAY.
    Been outside the three classic sprint finals (100&200&400) and should continue this year - IF THAT HAPPENS THE STOCK MARKET WILL GO BELOW 3000 BY NEXT MONTH.
    Been outside the SP top 8 and should definitely do so this year - DEFINITELY
    Fail to place in the top 8 in the LJ - with only 1 American in the top 15 maybe this year the streak will break - HOPING GOODWIN WILL FINISH IN THE TOP 6
    Place in the first two in the 800 and are not likely to do it this time - ONLY IF KAKI CHOKES AGAIN
    Has never placed in the top 5 in the 10K - maybe this time? - ONLY IF RUPP HAS THE RACE OF HIS LIFE.
    Never won a medal in the 3000 SC - and will not win it this time - I DOUBT EVEN THEY CAN MAKE THE FINAL.
    Never won a medal in the HT - Kibwe Johnson can change this record - DOUBT IT.
    fail to reach the final in the 400h only once (2001) and are unlikely to repeat this embarrassment - WITH FOUR TOP ENTRANTS THAT IS VERY UNLIKELY
    In spite of all the great decathletes never won two medals - Hardee and Eaton WILL change this
    Been in the top 8 in the 20K walk (the only event) - I offer 1:100 that this will not change. ONLY IF 90 % OF THE FIELD GETS DQs
    Lost when they finish the 100*4 - can they pass the baton so they can lose to Jamaica? - I AM AFRAID THERE WILL BE ANOTHER STICK ON THE GROUND.

    USA (women) has never:
    Been outside the top 4 in the 100m - Jeter should keep this record intact - SHOULD
    Won a medal in the 800 - maybe this time Vessey and company? - NO
    Won a medal in the 5000 - and will not win this time - AGREE
    Won a gold in the HJ and will not win this time - DEFINITELY
    Made it to the last 8 in TJ and will not make it this time - YOU CANT MAKE THE TOP 8 WITHOUT ANY ENTRANTS ? CAN YOU ?
    Won a medal in the throws - Camarena-Williams we are waiting - GOOD CHANCE
    Made it to the top 8 in the JT - maybe Patterson but unlikely - SHE WOULD HAVE LAST YEAR.

      Smock qualified with a 14.17 (14.10/14.30 are the standards).
