Is Macrozonaris really the best sprint hope in Canada? Pierre Browne and Anson Henry still run fast times, even though they have to go to school and run a ridiculous amount of meets. What's going to happen when they train full time? Both just graduated this year, Mac has been training full time since high school.

We will soon see. Canadian trials are coming up this weekend. They have all been preparing for this, unlike most other countries who have been forced to peak earlier because their championships were earlier. The canadian sprinters (Nick, Anson, Pierre) will probably start running a lot faster now.
I don't wanna speak badly of Macro. He beat Montgomery in Mexico City;no mean feat for sure. He's also not even 23 yet, so he's obviously a talent. But I think it should be pointed out that his non-altitude best is still only 10.17. He seems to run ver well at altitude and with a wind at his back. Here's his last four seasons worth of 100's:

10.03 1)Mexico City 05/03
10.29 2)Hengelo GP 06/01

Have you been to Toronto lately? Ever heard of Caribana? There are PLENTY of transplanted Carribeans in this area and a few Donovans and Brunys waiting in the wings. They didn't stop moving here yesterday and they won't be stopping tomorrow.
