    His 44"07 leg in the 1600m relay yesterday prooves his talent isn't dead.
    I wish this young talent to recover his fantastic shape at the indoors 2 years ago.

      Re: NCAA m400—44.67 CL for McQuay in semi

      Lawrence 44.04, actually.

      Proving (well, indicating) once again that the 400 would be a far better race if they did it as a one-turn stagger (like the 800) and then broke for the pole. Too many good marks are wasted because of the inability to run to max when stuck with not enough people around you. Let everybody race to the rail and watch the times drop. (Yes, you'd also watch a lot of people drop, but hey, that's how short-track speed skating became an Olympic favorite; we could do a lot worse)

        Gotta agree. That would also make it obvious to the hoi polloi who was winning. As it is now, we have to wait till the last 1/4 of the race to know.

            Berry also PR's with 44.77.
            Roberts made up the stagger in like 150m!

              Excellent run by McQuay. #2 in the world. Can he beat Kirani James?

                McQuay =No. 10 in meet history. Lendore equals the meet's record for 8th.

                    Still #3. Santos ran 44.4

                    I highly doubt he can, remember these college athletes are peaking. James in early season ran 44.7

                    But, right now, I wouldn't be surprised to see McQuay medal in London, if he treats the rest of the summer properly.

                      You are right, sir. I stand corrected.

                      All in all, this will be an interesting Olympic Trials in a couple of weeks. We'll see what Wariner has in him tomorrow. Forecast looks good and warm.

                        After this race.
                        Merrit, McQuay and Berry looks like a feasible team for London.

                          I think it will be Merritt and 2 collegiate athletes....

                            I have to say that even though that would break with tradition in a big way, I like that idea. People would be running a little faster than they would in lanes and you would (along with the blow-ups that would take place with certain athletes running too quickly, early) see even better times. At least in theory.

                              McQuay also finally takes down Tyrone Kemp's school record that he just missed in the semis.

                                2011 Nat'l champ, 2012 NCAA champ, I would not count him out of gold in London.
