If Brown was Jamaican he would be a world beater now. You all should've sent him out here when he broke the jr record. He would've been properly trained and developed. No gloating or nuttin.

The man pull up injured again in another big race..........steupssssssssss


Now that Darrel has not delivered the magical gold medal some were predicting here I hope you all sit down and digest some HARD facts
You just do not have a season (or a FIVE YEARS for that matter) like he's had going to the Olympics and beat the World.

Darrel Brown was the greatest junior sprinter in history and that is a great achievement in itself. Regardless of what happens here on out his place in our history is etched. However THAT has nothing to do with the present. Saying he'll be our main guy or a big threat when he's healthy counts for nothing because HE IS NEVER HEALTHY. Sentiment counts for nothing when the window of opportunity is less than ten seconds

Something is physically wrong with this guy and it needs to be addressed NOW while he is relatively young. He is always hurt and runs far too little. He has been handled the same way both by Henry Rolle and Stephen Francis. It must be clear to all now that Darrel's team (Darrel himself included) know something that we don't. Ah mean he hardly looked distressed when he trailed through the line.

Look at this quote from his coach Stephen Francis

“What he has been through is probably a result of his body type and maybe he had not done enough true developmental work as a youngster. But his fitness has improved a lot and he is more likely to be able to perform without great problems. There are no long-term injuries that he carries. I think most of his injuries are probably because he didn’t really have a good base for fitness.

Anybody here still doubt me when I say his career has been mismanaged after reading that?

Now that reality has slapped us hard in the face I hope the necessary steps are taken to save this precious talent. The days of just sitting down and hoping he'll be healthy one day are OVER! Enough is enough! Steps must be taken to address the physical and mental state of this athlete NOW!
My greatest fear is the psychological affect this is having on this athlete because every time he needs to push himself in a major meet his body fails him. It happen in Helsinki, Melbourne and now in Beijing. Not to mention it prevented him from running in Athens and Osaka

Nestor Brown musbe turning in his grave.

Allyuh lewe say ah prayer for Darrel that he and his team make the right decisions so that he can revive a once very promising career. Too great to talent to waste away

Well said Flash, who remember TT opening batsman Clint Yorke (Dwight's cousin)?  He was always promising but failed to deliver, for years commentators would talk about a solid 15 runs he made in the then Shell Shield.  DB will always have his accolades at the juniors but unless something is done to address this recurring issue he may not factor at the senior level in major meets. No horrors DB, we still proud and love yuh as a son of the soil
Education is our passport for the future for the future belongs to those who prepare for it today

I think the injury or soft spot on that boy is in his head.  Look at his heat.  Then look at his quarter.  He started well as a Junior and as soon as he got his first major injury, he is a changed man.  The talent is there but his mind need a lot of work.  "Just sayin"

from what i see he look like he ent pull no muscle , and as brownsugar reported he say he doin fine. to me it look like he realise he was behind in d field an he jus didn't bother to run hard again.

remind me of d time i was runnin d 800 for school sports, when a realise ah was ded las, faint on d track even tho not one ting was wrong wid me.   ;D. so i believe, d ting wid darrel brown is psychological. maybe trainin in jamaica wid asafa powell was a bad idea

Just a thought.... Maybe he realized that he is not in the best shape of his life and has decided to give his best to the relay rather than attempt to run 3 hard races. I trying to put a silver lining to the situation, because we have two great guys still in the hunt and a relay that could do some real damage. We ehn look this good all around since 1964 and I think we should dwell on the positives now that we know Brown is out of the individual race. We not depending on one man like how it was with Ato, so let's move on from it and hope the other guys really have us celebrating tomorrow morning.

This is what Fasuba's coach had to say about Brown,,,,,,,,,,

Quote
Actually, Brown fell down at warm-up just before the first round while practicing starting blocks. The fall figure was impressive but he looked ok after that. Not for long though. He could cope with one race (heat) but not two (quarter finals). Same thing happened with Mark Jelks last year in Osaka.

I glad I didnt say brown would have have pulled injured prior to the final because allyuh would  have accused me of goat mouth, looking at him for the past few years that outcome was the most probable so we really can't be surprised.  I feel sorry for the youth especially since he is a cool humble fella but the writing is on the wall, his individual career in the 100 is basically over.  He may have a future in track in the relay and possibly the 200.  I hope I wrong and brown returns to be a major force in track but right now that seems highly unlikely.

Burns looking good enough for a place in the final where he can surprise people and finish in the top 4 or do one of his specials (i.e. false start or finish dead last in the final after running sub 10 in the semis).

Richard Thompson is the real deal and Ato was right about him running the anchor.  Richard had a long season so I was doubtful about him having enough left in the tank for these games but so far this youth is looking very good.  He is the future of track for TNT and next year asafa, bolt and gay will have serious competiiton.  He is good enough to get bronze this year and anything can happen in the final so silver is possible.  Bolt is definitely the man to beat and Asafa is captain choker so I don't expect him to win gold.

As for allyuh yardies it is only small talk, all this thing about drugs is just picong.  Those guys getting tested like everybody else and once they clean that is all that matters.  If it was the other way around and it trinis running the real fast times allyuh would say we on drugs.  However, if bolt and safa get a beating don't come with any stupid excuse of they were tested too much so they couldn't perform.  All this talk about unity is just crap because the yardies on this site like to see us fail so when do the same all of a sudden trinis bad mind.  I am not saying all jamaicans are like that but the majority of them who post on this site are not supportive of other west indians and at the end of the day nothing is wrong with that.  Supporting your country and not liking your rivals could never be wrong.

As a west indian if the trinis don't beat the americans at least I will be satisfied if the yardies do it because the americans feel they are entitled to win at all times.

Here is my prediction for the 100M:

1) Bolt
2) Asafa
3) Richard Thompson
4) Gay
5) Patton
6) Marc Burns
7) Martina
8) Obikwelu
