Oregon vs. Florida. That’d be an interesting dual meet.

Ches showing quite the burst today. Soratos looks like he is going to make it fast tomorrow in the final, making a long stretch of days for Ed.


#3

Even though I’ve seen it so many times now, I am still blown away every time by Cheserek’s acceleration. I would not want to be on the other end of a head-to-head battle with him… That being said, I’m really looking forward to Soratos trying. He looked so smooth and confident today, but I feel like with the finishing speed Ches has, the only way Soratos can win is to go to the front from a long way out (1000m+). Should be an exciting race regardless.

Trayvon Bromwell ARK 20.23 prelims
Only Spearmon and Fredericks have recorded shorter times

Must have been the frustration from the FS in the 60. :frowning:

Number 3 all time is insane. His outdoor best is 20.59 from last year and his indoor best was 20.69 from earlier this season.

Bodes well.

I was talking with another coach at our school, and he feels strongly that Bromell is a future medalist at Olympics/World Champs.

I see no reason this couldn’t happen.

Personally I believe if you can run something wind aided you can do it with legal wind as well with the right training. That means that as a junior this kid had 9.77 brewing in him. That is incredible potential.

This 20.19 indoors in the 200 only serves notice that this young man is very special.

I have had some concerns about his height but that is more based on WR potential as opposed to medal potential.

Right now you have an aging Bolt, a questionable Blake and Gatlin. Gay will probably remain in the mix but I don’t think he will be in 2016.

Beyond those 4 there is nothing particularly scary out there. I’m not worried at all about Richard Thompson.

Here’s to hoping Bromell and Friday are the future.

7 posts!? This board is dying isn’t it?

No love for Jenkins??? No shock with his win in the 5 but beating Ches in the 3 was a big surprise for me. That boy might have a future.

Denby doubles over 27 and hits 57 even on his last triple that is a fantastic meet.

CR for Barber and huge improvement for Blankenship to top 19 (5.80).

Did Prandini do too much? Great sprint heats and then …

Outdoors time baby.

I’m a huge Jenkins fan and did think going into that 3000 that he would beat ches, but to do it by holding the lead from a long way out AND to close in 25 for the final 200 was really something. Will definitely be watching his results closely outdoors.
