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.

A woman who did not even make it to the 200m final of the Olympic Trials will get a free ride to Moscow. That's hilarious to me.

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

I must admit that Bolt doesn't look like the guy who could challenge MJ world record at 400m :D

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

Bolt isn't going to run fast (for him) until August this year.

I suspect his buildup this season will be more like the 2009 one. Pretty low key by his standards.

Why is it that every time Bolt runs a sub-par time, he's jogging? As Marlow says: it's February, he's just getting back into the swing of things. He killed himself on that lap and crawled across the line on fumes. Nothing shameful about that.

Becoming a good 400 runner requires not only the necessary talent and physiological makeup, but also a high pain tolerance in order to be able to handle the necessary workouts. Bolt lacks the pain tolerance and heart to become a great 400 runner, and doesn't seem to take much pride in his 400 races. This is exactly the opposite of Tyson Gay who takes tremendous pride in his 400 performances and once said that any elite short sprinter (100/200) should be able to run a decent 400 when they're in shape. If only Bolt had Gay's heart, Michael Johnson's WR might be in jeopardy.

Bolt doesn't have heart? That's the most ludicrous statement I have ever heard said about Bolt.

Bolt has the heart of a champion. Two Olympic Games 6 Gold medals.

Bolt does not have to prove anything to anyone that he is the GOAT by running the 400m. He simply does not like the event.

I said Bolt doesn't have the heart to be a great 400 runner. If he did, he would have a 44 on his resume by now, just like Tyson Gay has.

Three Olympics, six medals. Just being accurate.
