    Yep. Sadly predictable. I love the guy, but I'm always amazed that a veteran at his level still stutter-steps.

      SMH....typical. I agree....If he hits the last hurdle smooth without chopping, His momentum and strength probably carries him to the Gold.....

        Crap. >:-X The rankings are going to be a mess. 47.xx used to be a foregone conclusion in this race, Not anymore. Akii-Bua, Moses, Schmidt, Phillips, Patrick, Young, Matete, et. al, even Hemery would eat these guys alive.

            Dave Wottle started in his lane . . . and then ran out of his lane for almost 700 meters :-)

              The rain has become a psychological weapon in its own right. Now I really worry for Allyson in the open 400.

                    What makes you say that? Warholm has not lost a race so far this year. He's 2-0 against Clement and 3-0 against Copello.

                      Warholm is undefeated, World Champion and has a good series of marks; even if he loses a race or two in the next weeks, it's hard to see how he's not #1.

                      Beyond that, though...

                        Not saying it's a huge year for 400H but how many finals over the years were ran on rainy tracks and similar cold?

                        • it is just about the worst conditions possible, but Edwin Moses ran 48.35....as his 65th best time

                            I think Warholm will run 47 sooner rather than later. 48.35 in cold rain beats Hemery's 48.12 at altitude for me & I'm British.

                            I think Warholm may be about to dominate as there is a lack of reasonably young opposition.

                              Helsinki '05 was 20 degrees, heavy rain.

                              Today was 15 degrees.

                              • McMaster will probably be among the leaders in the future.

                                Rai Benjamin is one I think has a chance to be one of the best going forward.
