    If Samba goes sub-47, that should be the recovery of the century!

      Im going with Rai Benjamin for the win. I think either Samba or Warholm stumble out of the medals. The stakes are too high, the pressure is intense, the expectations are through the roof. That has got to break someone into a mental mistake.

        If there's anyone who doesn't buckle under pressure, it's Warholm.

          I won't be surprised at all if Benjamin wins, but he's the only one without any previous big meet experience, not sure why he'd be rated least likely to buckle.

          I hope none of them buckle, and we get to see an epic race.

            well, he faced Warholm and lost a squeaker, that is the best place to be, all expectations on Warholm and none on Rai. Ive been running my computer models on pressure and expectations for hours, the computer room is hot from all the flops!! The computer says Rai has nothing to lose and runs the race of his life !! dont fight it !!!

            Also, can Copello get back on track and medal ?

              Exactly. He's been collecting titles for fun the last few years and look at how he responded with Benjamin right alongside him a few weeks ago.

              Going out on a limb ... Warholm runs a WR in the semis, does feel a bit more pressured in the final but still wins in 47-flat.

                What exactly has been the problem for Samba the last few months? Last year he was unbeatable.

                  withdrew from Oslo in June with an inflamed hip; not sure I've seen anything beyond that.

                    He finished 2nd in Monaco with 45.00. Has he just been dodging his top rivals?

                        If Samba steps on the track healthy or even 90%, I think he is the best of the 3. But its hard for me to imagine Warholm loosing this.

                          Remember the epic men's 400 hurdles in Rome (1987)? Doha could be even more epic.

                            If the other two are at 100%, no way someone at 90% wins without something going awry (which happens in the 400h). When was the last time Benjamin lost a championship race?

                              After the 2018 season, I felt Warholm was lucky to have won '17 WC before Samba came along. I thought he was going to go the way of Jesse Williams.
