But aren't you dying for Bolt to nuke the 400 record down into the 42s?
A win in the 400 is New Territory. The 100/200 double is common; excelling ALSO in the 400 is not.
Yes, another 100/200 double would be epic, but yes, I'd much rather see a 400 Gold out of him, because I really do think he's got a 42 in him (with proper motivation).
He'd be a Legend either way, but I want it with the versatility that the 400 would confer upon him. (I really don't think he could LJ 29' even if he really wanted to).
[Regardless - I do see your point and can't refute it.]
P.S. If he did the 400, I'm sure it would still be part of a Triple (Gold): 400, 4x1, 4x4.
