Not expecting faster than Tyson's 9.86. Considering all the times I've seen so far in the previous races, but we'll see.


Maybe a 9. 79 or 9.80



9.79 coming off an injury :D You must be kidding.

Kind Butler is better than everyone in the main race other than Santos with the possible exception of Solomon.

Given the field, there's no urgency to run a blazing time. He'll probably run close to 10 flat after going hard the first 80 and gliding to the line.

Probably low 9.9's. Win is most important, I don't know if he'd want to go 9.7 fast so early in the season.

Haven't seen this mentioned, but isn't Merritt's 20.26 the US leader this year??
Beats Spearmon's 20.32.

Kerron is getting better. Her last race was in 11.27. She is rounding in shape nicely.

Can't confirm, but that's a great time for Merritt. Shows what shape he's in.

Depends on the wind reading. Anyone know the wind reading in these races? I am hoping there was a very strong headwind in the women's 200m because the times were pretty slow.

So now with Jeter confirmed to pretty much be recovered, this sets things up nicely for Prefontaine.
