Who's the real Canadian Hopeful?

Postby Guest » Fri Jul 11, 2003 11:36 am

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.

How about D, none of the above? Canada's brief moment in the sun as a sprint power has come and gone.

Not so fast. Canada has quite a few good sprinters, male & female, in the pipeline. It may take a few years, but their presence should be felt again by 2006 or so.

Training full time can totally change an athlete. Having to deal with school stresses can take it's toll

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.

Predictions for Canadian Championships.
1. Nicolas Macrozonaris 10.08
2. Anson Henry 10.13
3. Pierre Brown 10.19

Predicting places and times in a track meet is challenging. I don't know why Vegas does not has gambling on major track championships.

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:

2003
10.23 1)Baton Rouge 04/12
10.03 1)Mexico City 05/03
10.29 2)Hengelo GP 06/01

10.25 6)Ostrava GP 06/12
10.15 3)Athens GP 06/24
10.17 2–h1)Athens GP 06/24
10.34 4–f2)Lausanne GP 07/01
10.33 6)Paris GP 07/04

2002

09.96w 06/23 Can Ch

10.29 1–h1)Can Ch 06/23
10.35 2)Can Ch 06/23
10.34 4)Francophone 07/21
10.28 7–q1)World Ch 08/04
10.43 3–h10)World Ch 08/04

2000

Dan--What's missing from all of these stats is the really important information. How much did he get paid for each of those races? If we had that data, it would be a study in Macroeconomics.

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.
