      Looking at what the German Juniors did, I think that their relay training process is likely to be very good and think that they might medal here.

        Baton exchanges will be critical. I can even see the a team like Germany besting the US and Jamaica if the latter two have poor hand-offs.

          T&T has some good speed...could be a factor in an upset.

            Trinidad & Tobago has had baton problems in the past as well too.

                Meant enough for you to take a look and comment. Therefore, must be somewhat meaningful. It's all an educated guess at this point in every event. Kind of like preseason polls in other sports.

                  On paper Germany can beat US and Jamaica even without poor hand-offs. Germany ran 42.25 in Hengelo with Burghardt instead of Pinto, that replacement cost them at least 0.3s. In Lille they ran 42.47 without Mayer and Pinto, which cost them at least 0.6s. With Mayer and Pinto in shape they could run 41.5, they did 41.62 last year and Mayer, Lückenkemper and Haase have since improved. But Mayer and Pinto are the problem, Mayer has been injured since Hengelo, she seems to be healthy now, but is she in form? Pinto was sick for a couple of weeks and also lost a bit of her form.

                    You said the same thing for the mens 4x100.

                      I seem to recall that a stressed US team ran a 41.01 from Lane 1. 42.0 is not in that same ballpark.

                            did a certain couple of Ducks just run themselves off any possible relay appearance?

                              I suppose Stevens has a shot at redemption in the 200m. With Gardner injured, the only leg from Rio that needs to be replaced is leg #3, and there are quite a few Americans in London at the moment who could do decently there (Jefferson, Duncan, Brown).
