    He is a Bolt-level talent.
    Or... maybe he's going to keep getting a little better each year, like he's been doing since 2013! Why not that? He made a U.S. team every year of high school and has had a steady progression.

      On the NBC Gold main stream, Steve Cram and Tim Hutchings were talking about the 2019 WC in Doha, and they said there were going to be two evening sessions, with a break in between devoted to entertainment. They would start a 6 PM local, go to about 8, then resume at 9 and go to 11, semis and finals being in the later segment. I don't know whether this means there will be no morning session. They also said that only two field event finals will be held per session, different disciplines and genders. The marathons, they said, will start at midnight.

      BTW, the Olympic Channel broadcast was a different set of commentators -- Paul Swangard, Kellie Wells and Josh Cox. Well, two out of three isn't bad. >:-)
      Cheers,

        And de Grasse in 6th (20.46)?!?! Anyone know if he's still injured?

            The conditions in Doha are always pretty much perfect, at least for sprints and field events.
            Było smaszno, a jaszmije smukwijne...

              It was over 90 degrees with a lot of humidity. If every sprinting event was held in those conditions, you would see world records all over the place.

                  He sure looked good in that jump. 2.40, a bit higher than I had expected.But what about the rest? Ghazal did as could be expected and Thomas was Thomas. He can get to 2.35 this year again. But guys like Przybulko. Yes, it's early but I had thought he was about to establish himself as a contender. Barshim need a jumper like Lysenko to show up.

                  But nobody at that meet impressed me more than Gardiner.

                    Luckily I get the Olympic Channel which had this live, so I DVRed it and watched the whole thing last night . . . wow! If this is what the DL is going to be like this year with no global championships to peak for, we're in for a great ride.
                    CT is always a great interview. He was pumped that he was already at 58-5 (17.81), even though he lost.

                      pity Neeraj Chopra, who raises Indian Record to 87.43..... and gets 4th.

                        In addition to Lyle’s 9.86w 100, we should take this as a sign he is really ready for great things this year.

                          since June of '10 to be more precise!

                            I would say that the Trials last year where the top six were fantastic fits the bill for the best that I have seen for a while; of course it was the women and you implied the men's race..

                                Clearly, de Grasse went wandering as well which is why he only ran 20.46.
