the meet had little but at least it had Powell..

for a guy who is relativley fragile, having him run on grass (from the eye of the uneductaed) does not appear a smart decision

I thought of exactly the same thing, given the difference of running at speed on a synthetic track vs grass - I have seen footage of MVP athletes training on grass but more conditioning work. Also Powell through rounds chasing people under pressure has never been a strength of his running, I always felt the semis would be where his Stawell Gift ended.

and on to the nationals ....

Rutherford's jump was the meet highlight (????!!!!!!)

if some one had told me this would be the 2013 meet a few years ago I would have laughed,

very sad
