Thread: Bolt strikes in Moscow 100m Final

    Re: Bolt strikes in Moscow 100m Final

    Bolt's 9.77 in pouring rain and into a slight headwind is worth at least 9.6x under the conditions Gay ran his 9.7x races this year. Traditionally, Gay has not improved much between US trials and major championships, so I think Bolt would have probably won against him as well.

    A healthy Blake is capable of performances similar to Bolt's, but last year he panicked in both Olympic finals and lost by quite a margin, so not sure if he'd been able to beat Bolt if he'd been healthy.

    Who can say who would have done what had they been there, what we can be sure of is there would have been a lot more pressure on Bolt, had Blake and Gay had been there. As for Powell would he have changed the habit of a lifetime and performed at his best in a global final ???????

    Thank you. No doubt gay/blake would have put some serious pressure on Bolt.
