    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

    in majors, you get 1 extra day off from semi
    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.

    What is particularly impressive to me about Kerley's run is that he ran this time on a day when there were strong positive winds in the home straight (stretch). 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

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

    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.

    I would love to see them, Botswana and South Africa try to challenge the US, Jamaica, and Bahamas I think all are capable of breaking 3.

    I will contain my excitement over this youngster. Lets see what he can do later on this season.
    If no one runs faster, he'll be ranked number 1 in the world. Not a bad year.
    But fear not, this kid is a rambler. He manages himself real well. I suspect he's got a few more yards in him this year.

    USAs should not be an issue. Remember Merritt as a wild card, so making the team shouldn't take that fast of a time. Also, USATF is only 2 weeks after NCAA's so he will probably still be in his 44.x/43.x form.

    Now doing well in London is a whole other question though....
