I'd Like To Thank The 100m Guys....

Postby gh » Sun Aug 10, 2003 7:13 am

..... for clarifying the sprint picture for in Berlin today:

1. tie, Capel & Fredericks 10.23; 3. Drummond 10.23; 4. Aliu 10.24; 5. Williams 10.26; 6. Gatlin 10.33.... NOT!

I guess the only thing that's clear, since he also won the Rome 100, is that Capel chose the wrong race at nationals! (or should have doubled)

Am I alone in this or does anyone else think it actually makes a difference in placing what the wind is? Don't some guys run better into a wind than others and vice versa. Not only did the times do nothing to clear the picture, but I think that an equal tailwind would have changed the finish order (significantly, since it was so close).

Oh, and speaking of a clear picture, I guess the Paris women's 1500 winner just confirmed her placing.

The wind was a clear factor in that race. Don't give Capel the glory now. Some people just run better through the wind.

Chambers probably still the 100 favorite, or whoever wins Zurich.
