Interesting, but it will be NEWS only when/if one or both of them run in the 44's....or faster!!

It's like the 230 foot discus thrower who shot puts 58 feet!!
Who really cares about his 58 foot shot??

Bolt can run 44+ if he is pushed and also, if he wants to.

No need to do that in his first race of the season.

Expect your typical 45+ season opener.

That link was bolt's first 400 this season. He seems to really run out of gas at the end.

I wait 45.5-45.7 for Bolt, although i would love sub45 :D

Blake perhaps gets PB, 46,49 i think that is "easy" time for him.

I have a lot of feel see them to run

When pushed, Bolt can run much faster in a open 400m if he wants to. Usually, he takes it easy in most open 400m races. He has said repeatedly, he hates the 400m even though while in high school, he was a 200/400m runner and has the Jamaican high school records for both.

In 2010, he ran a 43.58 anchor leg for 2nd place in a 4 x 400m in Kingston. It was amazing how much Bolt's team was behind a the beginning of the anchor leg and how much ground he made up.

Bolt without doubt "hates" 400m :lol:

I doubt so much that Bolt in a near future runs 400m seriously :wink:

Is that even a question. He has said repeatedly he has no interest in the 400m.

Yes jamboy i know it perfectly.
But is is good remember it for some people that thinks that he perhaps want to run 400m soon.

I dont think it, he loves sprinting, he hates 400m, it is very sure :lol:

it would be interesting know the time for Blake.
Weir got 46.21 or something like it, then Blake perhaps broke his PB that was 46.49 i remember..

By the other hand, very normal times for Bolt and Blake.
They ran 60% today i think :wink:

In the 400m over the years, Bolt only runs enough to win.

The only time Bolt has ever been "All Out" in a 400m is in that 4 x 400m race linked above.

Bolt ran 45+ in the open 400m in HS at 17 years old has been only marginally faster(deliberately) since.

Overstatement...

Paced himself and ran a conservative 250... was behind at 300m and then put in the work from then out to take the win. Lactic acid smacked him something vicious after that race though, He seemed understandably out of it at the end of the race.

Good run by Weir.

Shows strength. I do expect a 1-2-3 finish and possibly 4th place as well in the mens 200m at the WC in Russia this summer.

Jamaica will have 4 entrants in the mens 100 and 200m as well as womens 200m.

Also in the women's 100. A perk from winning the DL in the year prior to a WC year is that the winner of the DL trophy gets a bye for the next WC (provided the country doesn't already have someone with the a bye in that event already, a maximum of 4 athletes are allowed). So SAFP has an automatic spot in the 100.

I think an athlete proving themselves over the entire year can be considered better than a one off major meet race.

Bolt has said repeately he has ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST in running the 400m. It is just crazy fans, the track and field media that keeps hyping up the possibility.

He has the potential(43+ anchor leg video above), but he does not want to.

End of story here.

You don't need to worry about Bolt fitness level. He will always be ready when it counts.

Having just watched the video from the post previous to this, it's very evident that Bolt gave everything he had to run that. It proves two things:

A. He hates the 400
B. He's not in very good speed endurance shape.

I posit two further things

A. He doesn't care about B. above
B. He'll be in shape (for a 100/200 at least) come Moscow.

He's proven over and over that if and when he decides to get serious, it doesn't take him long to get into superb shape. That said . . . he IS getting older and it won't be quite so easy to do that as time goes by. But . . . never bet against him at Championship time.

watched blake and bolt

to me, bolt wont work hard enough for a low 44 400

could he, maybe, but jam fans who think bolt can just hop onto the relay 4X4 and beat usa underestimate what bolt is willing to do

but reggae boyz going into azteca and taking point fro mexico, who knows what their tracsters can di in 4X4
