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

      I doubt she will make the final.

        Why do you call the Turk Cakir and IAAF says her name is Alptekin?

        P.S. In the picture of Kaniskina in the w20W, I couldn't help but notice that she's . . . uh . . . never mind, MJR will just give me a long lecture if I say it.

            It would be a "BOLT out of the blue" if anyone but Bolt wins!!! :lol:

                formchart trivia, while waiting for some actual athletics...
                Here are the most venerable best marks of athletes in the formcharts:

                w10km
                Kidane (2003)
                w100h
                Foster-Hylton (2003)

                mHammer
                Ziolkowski (2001)
                mDiscus
                Alekna (2000)
                m800
                Borzakovsky (2001)

                Long careers to have best marks that far back and to be successful enough now to be on the formcharts this year.

                  Clearly if Blake is given the 100m then the situation is the same for the 200m and he 41`3``should also get the nod...why wasn't he?

                  I think its downright illogical to give bolt the 200m but not 100m either that or the predictors are trying to save face, should bolt repeat his double gold heroics...subjective predictions

                  ...there I ripped one.

                  Rupp for a medal?

                    God, mine aren't...

                    The Aussie team have a goal (quite an optimistic one) of six medals so they would be disappointed if they only manage the four top-8 positions listed here.

                        FWI, in the womens4x100 Ukraine won Bronze in Daegu last year, not Russia.

                        The mens Long jump looks like you picked names from a hat.
                        And the selection of Isi makes 0 sense.

                          The pick of Isi makes perfect sense because there is no clear second choice to pick over Isi. Just throw Speigelburg, Suhr, Murer in a hat and choose one. That doesnt make sense to me. I chose Isi to win also. Sometimes champions find a way to win. I would rather take my chances on Isi and her no height over all of the others.

                            Her inconsistency is off the charts.
                            And also considering the rational for bumping other athletes down in other events contradicts putting Isi on top.

                              Were there many Americans in fourth or fifth? That constitute a potential upside.

                                You'd be crazy not to pick Isinbayeva for a medal. She jumped over 5 meters indoors this year. She has barely competed outdoors this year, but that is standard for her.

                                It's not a slam dunk like it was 4 years ago, but she doesn't need to be 100% to win. She may bomb out and do nothing, but if I was betting on the outcome, I would pick her for a medal.

                                Having said that, I would love to see Jenn Suhr win
