I was waiting on that one Soca. But let's not play who's predictions did not pan out..

Indeed that was a surprise. Sorrillo ran a storming leg. Very impressive. But let's not forget we have a huge hill to climb. i.e Japan, GB and Canada.

It's a surprise to you but not to me.

What you didn't factor in your argument about them not running sub-38 back in 2012 when all our team members were arguably in better form is that they had some terrible baton exchanges back in 2012 especially on the last leg and had they had efficient baton exchanges back in 2012 we would have easily placed 3rd without having to rely on any of the other teams being DQed for us to medal.

So once again the lesson here is not to underestimate the ability of our team which is capable of beating Japan, China, GB and Canada if all team members execute the footspeed they are capable of and we can pull off efficient baton exchanges.

Hopefully they will run even faster than that 37.96 in the final if they plan to medal. A time closer to our NR of 37.62 will be nice and is totally possible provided all team members run like their life depends on it and execute efficient baton changes on all legs.

If we don't medal it will be down to lack of relay practice and competitive races to prepare our team for the big stage more than any other factor in my eyes.

Did they make it to the next round? If they did. They better come to a quick decision. By the way Kerron Clement won the GOLD. The only Trini to do so, so far. Oh Gosh, give the man some love nah! Congrats Kerron.

was just on the today show, congrats to de yute  :beermug:

I guess the predictions were incorrect. Looks like we will be falling below expectation.

By CAC standards maybe, but not quite ready for prime time, wish her the best in coming years.
We need fresh talent - KAB may not be around for 2020, and we need vast improvements from the likes of SH and KS, or someone new.

Sad. Sad. The curtain has finally drawn on the 4x100 mens team. They did us well. Kept us a factor in the 4x100 for the past 15 years. Now its time to do work.

I was now going and say that. WE LOSE TO CHINAAAAAA. And Japan have now overtaken us as the 3rd fastest team in history. Lets put these Olympic games behind us.

We need a sprint program.

Meh uncle used to say " when trini f00k up, we does really f00k up". 2 DQs in a matter of moments.. I know what he meant now.

Let's put these Olympics behind us. Went from our best to what is looking like our worst.

The worst Olympics ever, heck i knew this would be a blighted Olympics  :frustrated: :frustrated:
But i for one im Grateful, for what is happening Now with these Performances,
it just goes to show how half assing and totally Irrelevant the Naaatt is under the Guidance of Serrette, and his board of failures.for years i have been saying this,since our decline in Carifta year after year, yet he constantly skins and grins his teeth like he is accomplishing anything beside Regressing Track and field in this country..
i see people saying we need a over haul etc and NaaaTT need to get they act together, well for me i need them to get the hell out and away from the sport and Start a New Board and Constitution and a New National Program, Centered on Community based and Community Centered Coaching and Athletes in the surrounding areas of such Communities.
if we want Trinidad and Tobago to succeed, we need to start Doing things our way and do away with that failure Administration.
we cant be a Jamaica , cause TnF is only Successful, because of Jamaica over arching and fanatic loving of There Country and Pride they feel when they compete in Regional meets or National meets or even International meets...........etc
