They had no idea who each of the Kenyan performers in the 10k were even though their name tags are on until the results were posted. They were also surprised at the performances of some clear favorites in a number of events. One said it was the first he's seen of Ashton Eaton....and on and on

Interestingly, Caster Semenya looks like she could be Yohan Blake's twin with their similar hairstyles

RT in trouble as far as I could see yes.  That heat was very poorly executed, I see him having to extend to make the final and that will take the sting out his run.....unless he rel playing possum, but from the looks of his run....I scared...I want him to make it badly, I want him to win the final...but first he have to make it...Kim Collins looked much better than him in the opening heat...steups....

This man was picked over a man who made de last 3 finals!!

The semi final line ups will be interesting.........Remember is 3 semis with the top 2 in each semi along with the 2 next best fastest times

and you wonder why I said, what I said about Ato`s prediction on the other thread. He always get his start together for a champs, and if he is with the pack at 60m, he will surely win.

Burns been running slow since early last year...he will not have made any difference. In Armstrong defense he has been running faster than Burns so he deserve to be in Daegu more than Burns

Thoughts after Day One:

I hate this new format for the 100m Rounds. The Preliminaries were a total waste! A Samoan running a PB of 15.66?! Worse yet there will now be three semis....top two and next two fastest time will make the final. These swirling winds will rob at least one person of a finals spot.

One of the three semis will have two Jamaicans in it. Let's hope neither Thompson nor Bledman are in THAT semi. Armstrong earned his opportunity and deserved it despite Marc's credentials. Too bad he squandered it. for a 10.0 man and Commonwealth Bronze Medallist to fail to make the semis even with it being expanded to 24 runners is disappointing

Didn't like our guys races one bit. Whether they were playing possum or not; finishing third most likely gives them hard semis. I guess if you're gonna be a medallist or even champion, finishing top two in your semi should be a non issue but right now those guys will have to run balls out to make that final.

Thompson looked like he could have beaten Kimmons but he SHOULD have and ensured a better lane and easier semi. Bledman looked genuinely beaten and that's not a good sign

Bolt looks utterly untouchable. A Jamaican 1-2-3 looks a real possibility but not a 1-2-3-4. If I were to go by the QF alone I'd say Bolt, Blake, Carter for the saucers...umm...excuse me.....medals based on what I saw. Dix looked quite good and is a real medal contender. Lemaitre looked solid as well. Frater should be a finalist

Not impressed by Gatlin at all. Collins looked good and the three round format helps the old man out but I think he may have shot his load. Makusha didn't look the darkhorse I foresaw.

Nothing I saw in that round suggest to me that anybody has a chance of beating Usain Bolt in that final. Hope the Torpedo and Bledman find something special in the semis tomorrow. Based on those QF they can't even look ahead to the final right now.

The Torpedo needs a semi like Berlin/Beijing to get back in the mix but still backing my guy

I would have gone with Burns as well. I just seen the startlists for the semis. Dont really know if KB or RT will make the final. We will be lucky if one Trini make it.

8   783   Churandy Martina    NED   10.10   9.93


Bledman is in trouble. Blake and Dix look like automatic qualifiers. He'll have to run flat out and hope for a nice tailwind. Daniel Bailey and even Chambers cannot be discounted. Bledman has a chance to make the final ONLY if he gets a better start.

Thompson's calibre says Bolt is the only man he should fear in his semi. However he has absolutely no margin for error whatsoever. Frater, Kimmons and Lemaitre are all real threats and quite frankly Lemaitre and Frater looked better in that QF than him. He cannot start and execute as sloppily as he did today and make that final

Semi-Three is quite a toss up after Carter. Let's hope they run into a -3.0 headwind.

Nevertheless RT and KB will be well advised that they MUST try for top two. Fastest losers is a total crapshoot with these swirling winds to mess up the times.

For the exception of Bolt, whoever qualifies from this semi, will be running on steam come finals. Full out effort required. To echo Flash`s comments, Richard must go for top 2. I know there is more in Richard`s tank, but Lemaitre could well have the beating of him. I wish him the best.  :beermug:

Ato, if anyone beats Bolt it would be a shocker!  the way that man won his heat today was astounding at the least!

Unless he gets a very slow start or stumbles, or pulls up, or false starts..he eh losing!
