Gatlin should run in the pan am games

Postby Guest » Wed Jul 16, 2003 8:36 am

After not qualifying to the WC in Paris, I believe that Justin Gatlin should be selected to run in the Pan Am Games because it would give him more international experience.
Everybody knows that is not going to be a top field, but a sprint double victory in there would help him recover from the us trials.
What do you think?

I agree with you. The team for the pan am has not been anoucied yet and I really don't think that he is going to be on the list, because he problably is not interested.
But, it could help him to get prepare for the Olympics next year.
As you Know, Bernard Williams was the 1999 pan am games gold medallist in the 100m and if it gave him experience so shall give Gatlin.

It's not his choice. He has to be selected, and it is very unlikely that he will be.

Thanks for showing how the athletes are going to be selected for the pan am games.
I am from Brazil and down here things are a little diferent, if one of our best athletes was injured during the brazilian championships, but got better after that the selectors could take him to the pan am games.
I think it would be great for competition have a the talented world indoor and 6 times ncaa champion in there.
But that is life.

If he won't run he won't be "selected." As I understand it, they basically go down the list of qualifiers in ranked order based on what they did at the Nationals, and when one guy declines, they ask the next guy on the list. They "select" a team consisting of people who've said yes.
