    why should you? You have no skin in the game. Nor do I.
    Whenever they race, what ever the result, I will be a spectator. To say he will never beat VNK is pointless.

      And completely heedless of T&F history - past, present, and future.

I have often known athletes to run quick 400m times when there is a headwind in the last 100m, and I suspect this is because they can use the wind to run a fast first 200m with relatively low effort and can save energy for the battle with the wind in the last 100m. In my experience, fast 400m times are rare when the reverse occurs when the athlete burns up a lot of energy in the first 200m into the wind and has little energy left to get the benefit of the breeze in the final 100m.
        that wind wouda cost at least 0.25s, so that gets him down to 43.45 in 0 wind stadium

        ( big wind coud hurt you by nearer 1/2s )

        in addition he had serious fatigue of a 45.9 in his legs

        in majors, you get 1 extra day off from semi

        that lack of rest has to be worth at least 1/4s compared to full extra day

        i reckon, currently, in a 1-off zurich in 0 wind, he is likely in at very, very, very worst

        ~ 43.20

          In global championships, 45.9 is very unlikely to advance you to the final, and you usually don't get a rest day in between. For example, in Rio you had to run 44.49 to make it to the final and there was no rest day in between.

            he had enough gas to run a 43.3 relay the next day

            it looked easy, with jog in 1st 100, push on backstretch, easy final bend, then hard straight until easing up into handover

            he couda gone 43-flat if flat-out & that 's not generous

            43-flat relay with 0.7s is 43.7 for open

            that indicates on 3 days of running, off 45.9, he coud go 43.7 on a windy day, likely a 43.4+ if not windy, then an intrinsic 43.7 if flat-out day after on likely similar windy day

            that is back-to-back likely 43.4s

            only wade of rio guys is in his ballpark
