    One of the reasons I enjoy CF.com is that there is very little of the above trash talk. Can we get back to the point? I thought Frater ran really well, and dropping in Asafa will definitely get you a better top speed but not necessarily a better exchange.

    The bottom line is, the Jamaicans put in a solid team effort today, and the Americans looked really good as well until the unfortunate collision. I feel bad for Darvis Patton, that was a tough one to predict!

    Also interesting was the uncharacteristic media outburst from Justyn Warner when the Canadian team went out in the heats due to Gavin Smellie's hamstring cramp. Justyn is a really good guy, and they probably should have made the final. With all the BS that happened, a medal would not have been out of the question. Interestingly, Gavin is Ben's guy, and he's been running pretty well all year. Warner basically accused Gavin of coming into the champs hurt and running despite not being ready.

    Nice showing by France too. I'm surprised more teams don't look into the upsweep pass, it seems simpler and easier to maintain baton speed through the zone with that type of pass.

    In theory, I believe you can gain some free distance with the upsweep pass versus the push pass, but if you miss the receiving hand on your first "sweep" upward, you're screwed.

    I believe that a drop by Szewinska was the reason Gerard Mach cited in his manual for switching to the push pass. If you miss with the first push, you get a chance to try a second one. I can tell you that using the push pass with grades 3 to 8 has allowed us to complete 38 of 39 races in the last two years. In the case teams with a lot of talent, sticking to whatever is simple is probably wise, but if i was a second tier team, why not take a bit of a gamble?

    I prefer the push also. Straight to the hand-also tends to be midway for upswing or downswing of arm action so no matter where they are in the armswing they are not far away from being able to push.

    Nice find. I feel bad for the guy especially now that he has a dislocated collarbone and will miss what's left of the season. Damn.
