    I asked Ralph about Gatlin at the IAAF Level 5 course, he said they were working on his overstriding and thought he had 0.01 in him if they sorted it. He got great conditions in Doha and got 0.03- basically, I would bet against Gatlin going sub 9.70 ever.

    I agree, it's hard to see him putting himself out there and risking getting beat by Gatlin. Maybe he has more pride than we think though!

    If bolt is smart he fakes an injury and gets with blake and trains for the olympics.
    Asafa looks to me like he is playing possum. Like degrasse did bromel in the ncaa semi

    Bolt doesn't need to fake an injury. He has a real one, which is why he was in Germany visiting you know who. Asafa reminds me of those old "psychology" threads about Asafa "panicking" that drove Charlie straight up the wall. Looks like he didn't really get his kind of start and then shut it down a bit around 50-60 when he knew he couldn't win. Asafa had run 9.84 and 9.81 and was off from that, and should have known it wasn't going to beat Gatlin anyway. They switched the 200 and 100 times due to wind, so there's a bunch of things that could have bugged him, including maybe jet lag.

    Guess we are going to find out in six weeks or so.

    You don't have to wait 6 weeks. Bolt has signed for London. I guess if he bails you'll have to wait the full 6 weeks.

    True, but the big prize is in six weeks.

    As it stands at the moment Gaitlin is a big favourite to win the World Champs, Bolt will miss the final, and that leaves Gay, Powell, and ? to fight for medals.

    London, I think will tell us whether Bolt will go to China or not.

    Can de Grasse give Gatlin a race? We'll get an idea in the Pan Am Games in about 10 days. If he's not cooked by all the racing before Beijing, Jamaica might not get a medal in the men's 100.
