All three T&T quarter-milers comfortably thru to the Semis with sub-46 clockings.
So far so good! :thumbsup:

I would expect near 45 flat clockings in the Semis and sub-45 clockings in the Final.
Hoping all 3 T&T quarter-milers make it thru to the Final which will reflect positively on our 4x400m Relay medal chances.

Sorry to hear about MLA but take care of yourself.  Rio in 2 years is the goal.  Good luck RT and KB today

For a Caribbean athlete the big meet tune up is good:

Really 10.24? Very disappointing run from Bledman. Now he has to wait to see if he qualifies

Yeah, Thompson third in his race. Won't be in final.
Ran 10.18.

Not surpsing really, he seems to run his best races in TT.

This is simply not the man of the 2008 Olympics.

I think he can continue training hard but a sub 9.9 won't happen unless it's a TT track.

At first I thought it was the new track that was producing such fast times. But five years later, I can only shake my head at these great times but only in TT. Bledman is the exception.

Flicking crap.

No desire from these guys. Just a laissez-faire attitude from 2 men who should have been the class of the competition

Did he take care of business?

As I told you how you run in the Heats means nothing if you still don't make it into the Final.

Sad for both Bledman and Thompson. Guess their only consolation now is to win silver or better in the Relay but I don't see them beating Jamaica in the Relay unless Jamaica slips up badly.

I have told you more than once VB that Thompson ran fast outside of T&T this season.
He ran 9.95 legal in Europe and 9.74 wind aided in the USA over a month ago.

I believe Thompson's problem is that he peaked early and was unable to maintain his form for more than a period of 3 to 4 weeks.

I thinks his solution to maintaining his form for a longer period is becoming stronger and maybe running more 200s to help him build-up his speed endurance.

Dude like I said you have comprehension problems. He did not take care of business in the semi final but he definitely took care of business in the prelims. Now I told you before "you like to hear yourself talk."  :D

They did their best!

Bledman was no class of that field as he has not regularly beaten all the athletes he was up against in that field this season.
10 flat is the fastest time Bledman has ran all season and that was in T&T at the Senior Champs.

Regards Richard he simply peaked early and was unable to maintain his form for more than 3 to 4 weeks due to lack of strength and speed endurance. He needs to do more strength gym work as well as to run more 200s to build up his speed endurance.

And I explained that my definition of "Taking care of business" is making the Final and contending for a medal if your form this season shows that you have that ability which is obviously different to your definition.
So to cut your childish argument short neither Bledman or Thompson took care of business based upon their abilities and form earlier this season.

Now move on. Your definition makes no long-term sense to me when we look at what should be the goal and result of taking care of business so maybe you need to become a bit more mature in how you define things.

We continue to underperform in sprints which cost us any chance of medals. We lack junior sprinters who are fast enough to just step in and take the place of our top sprinters when they begin to regress from their prime. But some posters still think we are Jamaica and USA rivals  :rotfl:
