  • McMaster's presence was definitely missed in the final, but I'm glad with the medalists.

    Warholm has a bright future ahead hopefully!

    • Warholm having that 400m flat speed is also a huge factor in his success and future instead of relying more simply on consistenly executing great rhythm/stride pattern, effort distribution.

      • Warholm ran a beautiful race and is a very worthy winner.
        The men's 400H is a ghost of what it used to be, definitely in a down cycle.

        • Warholm will get his chance to run for a PR in a few weeks. If he can get under 47.5 Ill say he has the mantle, otherwise Ill assume the event is at a low point.

            It's not. The overall level this year is the best we've seen in a while, with world no. 10 at 48.40. Warholm, Samba (who could have medalled here if it wasn't for the final-hurdle stumble) and McMaster are all very young. Had the conditions in London been better, the times could have looked very different.

            • Yeah this event is almost as not interesting as 3000 steeple or 5k or 10k. lack of stars very visible, with Clement slowly but surely retiring this event this event is in trouble

              • Any Norges, male or female, ever won on the champ track besides Warholm and Rodal?

                (I don't think Grete ever won on the track! Champ track, that is!)

                  • For someone in only his second season as a 400H specialist, Warholm is showing remarkable consistency. He's won every final this year, with times of 48.25, 48.82, 48.46, 48.37 and 48.35. And with sub-45 speed, I fully expect him to improve before the season is over.

                        I don't really care who is 10th, I'm referring to the top-level times that win medals. ONE guy sub-48 this year. Conditions today made it impossible (improbable) to run really fast, but the rest of the season?

                        • If the conditions are more clement (if you excuse the pun), we are fairly likely to see sub-48 before the season's over.

                              He's not likely to have a lot of chances, what with Zürich being the only DL-staging of the event left.

                              • If the conditions are right, one race is quite enough There may be other opportunities at non-DL meets, too (I can't find the program for Rieti, so I don't know if it has the 400H, but that's one of the possibilities).
