Thread: Spar Cup Results - Olu Fasuba 6.49!!

  1. #41
    it's a pitty morne nagel was not in this race cos he seems 2 b closing in on fasuba's pace. .04s in russia with 6.67 to 6.63 and .03s in dusseldorf with a 6.61 to 6.58. i think that he could have maybe run 6.52 or better who knows.

    Difficult to compare, because in Dusseldorf, Morne had a 0.109 reaction time and Olu 0.153, and in Moscow, Olu completely missed his start.

    You mean .011. An almost irrelevant difference.

    Lewis never ran faster than 6.60 secs indoors I think. That doesn't mean that he wasn't capable of a 6.5 or 6.4X secs clocking. You can't ran 9.90 secs or faster going through the 60 mark in a slower time than 6.40-49 secs, if you do then you better be capable of 12+ m/s, now that would be something special. A 10.1X secs clocking needs 6.50-6.59 secs 60m clocking. Lewis went through the 60 m mark in 6.46 secs when he ran 9.86 secs in Tokyo 1991...a truelly magical race if you consider that six men went under 10 and two ran 10.2 secs and Lewis seemed to be behind until the end of the race. It would be very hard for any athlete to make up those 100th of secs if they went through the 60m slower than 6.50 secs. A sobering thought and more validation for a short to long approach.

    Harder or smarter?

    I don't want to pick on poor Jason. I remember when Nagel clocked 6.48 indoors, but failed to break 10 outdoors.
    But Gardener had 6.46 indoors, 10.12 outdoors following summer.
    So, between January and June a lot of things can go wrong...Gardener does Long-to-short with Arnold. So I would expect a lot, but not such a "weak" last 40m?

    Personally I don't care about the colour of the hopes, but if you do I'd keep my eyes on the 18 years old German Christian Blum, too.
