  • OK folks, rip us to shreds! (T&FN predictions)

    The link to the 47 by-event PDFs now available on the front page.

    With that much data cranked out between the OT and now, there's bound to be a howler or two in there. Stick it to us! (and we'll just as quickly effect a change and pretend we had it right from the get-go :mrgreen: )

    The German 4x1 ran a NR 38.02 today, which should put them around 3-4th place in the form chart.

        Those bastards are going to win gold if the US and Jamaica fall over each other :wink:

            No Guillermo Martínez? Kibwé Johnson in #9 sounds awfully like wishful thinking...
            Getting Tomasz Majewski's first name right in a T&FN formchart is almost heresy! :wink: Morozov isn't in Russia's m20K walk team, Kanaykin is.

              interestingly enough, that decision not made by an American!

                An observation: For some events you list indoor PBs for others you don't. What makes this confusing is, for example womens SP the PB for Ostapchuk indicates indoors by the small i, but in the mens HJ, indoor bests are not marked. And in the mens SP no indoor PBs are listed at all, Whiting and Storl both have better indoor PBs than outdoor.

                    Gee, 47 events times 10 spots (probably 15 athletes considered) = . . .uh . . . carry the two . . . take the inverse logarith of the tangent . . . um . . . LOTS of data to collate! :twisted:

                      Nice work, gh & others -- thank you! I'll be pretty happy if the medals/finishes came out as these predictions.

                        we didn't even stop to take a count.... how did the U.S. come out re Project 30?

                          What depresses me is that I took a lot of time and effort to come up with my own picks - finished them 2 days ago, and I did all that for nothing, because mine are almost identical as these.

                          Biggest differences:

                          I think you have it backwards on m100/200. Bolt will take 100 but then not have the strength to hold off Blake in the 200.
                          Merritt's cramp won't keep him from winning - but it'll be close.
                          I bet Rupp beats KB and almost Farah.
                          I still have Jamaica medaling in the m4x4, but you might make me change my mind.
                          [Thank you for the Mars and Ws - I shall copy them verbatim]
                          Jesse sneaks past the Russkis.
                          CC takes the SP!

                          I really think VCB is toast.
                          I agree that Semenya does NOT medal.
                          Don't agree with the w1500 at all
                          I think Isi will NOT pull it out

                            Unless I miscalculated, the formchart gives USA exactly 30 medals! Really doubt it's going to happen though...

                              i agree with you

                              history suggests no
