    Clement will be on Lane 4, will see his biggest rivals Warholm and Copello all race on. Will it matter tho? I dont think he is in great form and i can see him missing even bronze

      Only Clement can beat Clement. If he's feeling well, he can go all out, which tends to help his stride pattern, which means he MUST go fast. As long as he doesn't stutter, it's his for the winning.

        judging Clement's "form" based on prelims is a risky proposition.

          He is the best in the field. If he keeps his stride pattern he will win.

            agreed.... the only problem is that if you asked him going in what his stride pattern would be that's quite likely not what you'd get in the end result!

            He's not quite as extreme as Batman in that regard, but he's still somewhat of a freelancer, no?

              Yes. He has to clear hurdles cleanly and that is the X Factor. His superior athleticism takes him only so far.

                It's Clement's form in the prelims that makes me like his chances; but it's the hurdles, anything can happen, and Copello had an easier semi and got a good lane for the final.

                  you mean as far as 2 OG golds and 2 WC golds? :-)

                    But his championship record has been somewhat mixed. In his last 3 WCs he went out in the semis, then finished 8th and 4th. It is hit-and-miss for him.

                    Warholm is the one who's been the most consistent this year. The question is whether he's got enough of an upside to challenge Clement and Copello if they run well.

                      Man, I don't even know who to pick. I guess I would go with KC because it's a championship final. Warholm was my initial pick but I'm see him going too hard and tightening up in the final 100.

                        The wet track might play a role too in going on too fast

                          will the track get wet, or does the new expanded roof (since '12) pretty much keep it covered?

                            It looks like it keeps a lot of the bend (curve) dry. The straight appears to get no real shelter at all.

                              oh yeah, wet on the podium for the 400 VC.

                              suspect that means the same for the wLJ on the other side of teh track
