Don't get my wrong I love this country and our runners, but I also love seeing a more open-ended competition where there is no one country just dominating the final. Like take this year in the 100. There are many non-american sprinters this year so far with impressive times, like Partick Johnson, Frank Fredericks, Kim Collins, Deji Aliu, Dwain Chambers, Nicolas Macrozonaris, and Shingo Suestugu. There are only two Americans in the top 10 right now (not counting World rankings), and it seems that in each meet a non-American is winning the race. I know America is deep in the sprints, like kenya is deep in the distance races, but it looks like maybe this year the finals at the WC 100 will have no more than maybe 1 or 2 Americans, and no racer will be the favorite. I can't remember when a 100 race of this importance has been so up for grabs (but I'm barely almost 20 so I'm just a youngen haha). Anyone have a different view? I find this forum to be very educational as an aspiring athlete.
