I don't see Macro in the Worlds final. However, isn't he the reigning Canadian champ? I don't see who will beat him. Pierre Browne & Anson Henry would be the likeliest candidates, but neither are running as fast as Macro of late.
Macro is steadly improving, but I also don't see him making the final of the 100 at worlds. There's just too much quality and experience there. True he beat Montgomery early, but Tim will be in form by mid August,trust me! Montgomery,Greene,Williams,Drummond,Chambers,Lewis-Francis,Campbell or Gardner,Aliu,Obikwelu,Da Silva,Fredericks,Collins,Omoledu,Patrick Johnson.I just think it's too tough for him this year.7 of the 8 lanes could possibly be Americans and Brits. That sets up a good relay race if both teams do what they are capable of.
Macro did win Canadian Nationals last year, but if you paid close attention, you would have seen that his stiffest competition (Anson Henry, Pierre Browne) were fresh off of the NCAA championships 2 weeks earlier. They were peaked for the NCAA Championships. His PR only improved to faster than theirs this season, with that 10.03a. ALTITUDE, and nobody is running fast that early, so Montgomery obvioiusly wasn't in good form. Anson and Pierre are still students though, whild Mac is training full time, so I guess he does have an advantage. Should be a good race though, we'll see.
I predict that Nic will make the finals too. He
is getting ready to pop some really quick times.
I think he will finish 4th or 5th in the finals
at 100 meters in Paris. Not bad for a new kid
in his first Worlds. Just watch.
Macro will be lucky to make the semis. Even with people like Gatlin missing, there are a lot of good sprinters out there. I don't think he's one of the top 16. If I had to choose yes or no, I'd say Macro doesn't make the semis.
He also doubled at the Canadian Championships. He
won the 200 Nat'l Title too. Not bad for a guy
who gets very little respect. Macro was the first
Canadian to win the 100 & 200 Titles since the
name we all know, Ben Johnson. Nic the quick will
make the finals in Paris!
