    I heard Paul Kipsiele Koech will retire after Bruxelles DL.
    Don't know if it's confirmed so I will wait a bit before putting his name on my "black" list.

The only thing carmelita wqnted was olympic gold n if she didnt make rio her chances are practically 0 going forward. Great career and she will likely be second fastest woman for a,long long time.
    Sorry, I posted the wrong Instagram post! I recall a video thanking fans on Instagram which I took as meany she's retired but maybe I was wrong? She is working out in the gym so maybe she's going for another season?

    Ditto. Given the way he ran in the Rio 5,000, I think he still has a medal performance left in him for next year's Worlds.

    Logically that is very true. However it seems shelly n elaine hqve been cursed to keep getting still air when they run 10.7 flat. Jeter was a boss in thag whe ran 10.67 into slight headwind just shy of 30. I would love to know her training for that year n how,n why it came so late in the season.

    On another note I miss when track season use to end in lqte september. Carmelita ran 10.6 twice in mjd n late sep. Manh of srr,very fast times came in sep too qs well as,asafq.

    He is not. Not according to him, at least.

    As one would expect from a Cougar - and of course a totally unbiased and modest observation

    I've always had the feeling of something unfinished with her. Great physique, great PR (79.40m second woman in history) but very inconsistent (going from 78 to 68 a meet after another) and, I think, a bit weak from the psychological point of view.

    Well said!
