    idiotic ,allegedly, to say a 0.4 victory is a wupping( nearly half a second) by a guy not even given recognition in one post on this thread when he beats the Wariner wonder boy , ex Olympic champion, who has had a couple of races already.
    Some great fan :cry: said in his thread after Wariners defeat well done to Bryshum Nellum for his low 45. Perhaps he had not heard of Rooney, after all he aint a Merkan

    Some of the flag wavers here ought to be on the notorious Message Board of Letsrun.!
    Dude, you must be drunk or something. Not .4, but .04 (hundreds, not tenths) of a second. Essentially a quarter of a stride, if that. Wariner led the entire race and Rooney caught him in the last 10 meters. Big deal, just like Kirani James did to Merritt at last year's WC. Let's see where Rooney is in a month vs. where Wariner is heading.

    This year is shaping up like 2005 where DWill beat Wariner on 4/23 at the MJ Classic (45.06 to 45.13) then Wariner went on the steadily improve to 43.93 shape, or 2010 when David Neville beat JW in his first race, then Wariner went on to dominate the international competition and run 44.13. The commentators at Mt. Sac even said Rooney didn't put much stock in the win, saying that it was early in the season. If Rooney understands an early season victory is meaningless, then maybe you should as well.

      Clarification on Mt SAC men's LJ.
      Yesterday the video was available
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E70spwbsLu8
      There's the stadium announcer declared as a result of Luis Rivera 8.37/27 '5.00 '.
      The announcement was in metric units, and in imperial.
      TV commentator confirmed both results, but in protocol of competition is 8.22.
      Does anyone who watched the live broadcasting, to say which result was on tv titles?
      8.37 m = 27' 5?"
      27' 5" = 8.35 m
      If we measured 27'0 .50 ", and wrongly declared 27'5 .00", the metric value should be 27'0 .50"= 8.24.
      But the 8.22 m = 26 '11? "
      Does anyone can explain this?

        Mexico's Luis Alberto Rivera-Morales competed for the University of Arizona until graduating with a degree in industrial engineering in 2010, and finished 6th in the NCAA Indoor Championships that year. He currently holds the University of Arizona long jump record at 7.99 (26' 2.75").. His younger brother, Edgar Rivera-Morales, is a talented high jumper for the current Arizona Wildcats. Edgar did pretty well at Mt. SAC also, finishing second in the elite men's high jump with a jump of 2.25m (7'4.5").

          Rooney running 44.x (even 44.9x) any time is a worthy run. Done in April it is more noteworthy, and all the sweeter for taken on and catching Wariner. However, that April designation is also to place it in context. If he can go 44.8, 44.6, 44.4 etc. then it is continuing on his general track of moving into the top echelon of the event -- but he is still a little short of that lofty level.

            Another injury to come out of Mt. SAC was Jeshua Anderson, who pulled after the 1st hurdle with an apparent hamstring or calf probluem (cramp?, pull?). You can see the occurance in the FloTrack video of the race. Anyone have info on the severity of the injury? I really hope it's not too bad (maybe just a cramp?), as I think he could be a big challenger for a 400h medal (maybe even gold) in his first non-collegiate season.

              The commentators said "he seems to be walking OK, he's got just a little bit of limp" about 60 seconds after the race finishes, or 100 seconds after the incident between H1 and H2.

                Thanks for the info on Luis Rivera-Morales, Blues. Despite the measuring glitch it's still an impressive jump.

                26mi385, first priority for any Brit 400m runner is finals and medals. Saying that, our best ever runners, Roger Black and Iwan Thomas would dearly have loved to crack Thomas Schoenlebe's ER of 44.33, on their way to sub-44. We're the no. 2 nation at 400m historically and we really should have the ER! Kirani James, however, looks set to be the first non-American to sub-44. Well, Bolt also if he put in the training, but that's been discussed ad nauseum, so let's not go there.

                  My sloppy mistake as to the reference of Rooneys narrow victory of wonder boy Wariner by .04 secs but the point is that Rooney has hardly started his season and has not the pedigree of Wariner; the posters here are busy excusing a man who was congratulated by some after his opening 200m earlier and we are being told that, yeah, Wariner will be back to his old form this year.

                  Only a Merkan Flag waver would not give credence to an athlete beating Wariner, by whatever margin, a Brit athlete who has done nowt for a couple of years.

                  As for the comment by this poster that Merritt was only just beaten by Kirani James, fatuous !
