      The world champion (Richardson) gave Robles a nice run for his money in that Robles victory (13"01).

      edit: 13"01 official for Robles, who hugs the inside of the lane in this race.
      Fire Impossible.

            His starts...He's got to work on them much like VCB had too.

              He's not been the same since Pre. And his re-tooled start is clearly a problem.

                This 're-tool' goes up there with Isi's 'fix' to her run-up . . .

                  It doesn't appear to me to be "just his start" he just seems to not be getting up to the same powerful speed as before. Has he made any public comments on this?

                    Yes. Yes he has

                    These track and field "arm chair quarterbacks" are hilarious to me...if you not in the huddle, you don't know the play

                      Maybe he just peaked as a hurdler. I mean, not everybody is built to go faster than he already has. He might be one of those athletes (Safa, etc.) who comes and goes without any global gold medals.

                        Hmm, so rather than 'inform' his fans, he belittles them? Everyone who is concerned for him, wants him to get better. This sounds very defensive. I have not opined on what his 'problem' may be, because frankly I have no idea just from watching him. A 'poor start' is not a cause; it is the effect.

                          Yeah, but he ran the 7 steps last year too and with great success.
                          You are balancing on a fine edge in the 110. Lose some confidence and it's whole new ball game.

                          Not that he has exactly owned Robles in the past.

                            I don't think his confidence is an issue at all.

                            Something happened to his form midway through the season, no question. Here are his marks through July 8th:

                            13.16
                            13.12
                            13.09
                            13.14
                            13.18
                            12.94
                            13.04
                            13.09

                            Then, a 3-week break from competition. When he returns, the marks drop off noticeably:

                            13.38
                            13.28
                            13.19
                            13.44 (WC)
                            13.26

                            What happened from July 9th - July 29th? :?

                              His slowest race of the first half is faster than his fastest race of the second half. :?
