Records will be broken. Van Niekerk will go out hard in lane 8. Everyone will be chasing him. Ian Morris, say good bye to your record. Cedenio looks like he is in SUB 44 form. I think it will be a special night.

So you see no coincidence that the exact set of disparate points happen to all end up in his one article the day after it was posted?

Don't worry I 'm not asking for commission. As I said glad to help

Perhaps I am simply more knowledgable on this topic.

I did an interview with Ian Morris years ago. I happened to mention the historical perspective of his 1992 time in relation to the Olympics and Gold medals. Kwame and I had practically the same paragraph. Canīt remember who wrote first but we were stating facts and thus our paragraph was basically the same. I know neither of us copied from the other.

I have some hilltop land to sell you in Cocal...steups

There's also a comment (parallel to that made by another poster) that you did not highlight in bold (contained in KL's article)... that tends to suggest more than an ordinary or reasonable coincidence. Won't be the first time, the media has "resourced" forum comments.

NBC working hard to rehabilitate Gatlin's image.

Capital steups @ dem.

Ent, they can rehab all the silver medals in the world.

Right now Gatlin Silver medal is more than the entire T&T team in medals, this is why I do not get carried away with this type of stupid talk by Trinis on social media. Their own country is desperate for medals right now but playing d ass with Gatlin who has won more for his country than most of our athletes. Steupse we loose focus on what is more important.

I wonder if two trini's go make the 200m final. No VCB. Plus no SAFP. I think it's possible.

Poor Jehue. Jehue has the fastest 400mh time in the last 3 years. He could have easily added a gold medal to his cabinet.

I know. The strength of the 400mh field is not as strong as 2012. It must be hurting Jehue.

Lalova is beside her in lane 8. Was hoping MLA got a faster person to chase. Race strategy for MLA, get in front of Lalova and leave her in the dust.

[/quote] The girl did not dive, she leaned for the line and her legs gave out. She gave maximum effort and literally had nothing left. She wasn't flat on the track 10+minutes after the race by luck. Don't buy into the American hype trying to belittle the girl 's win. The name of the game is to cross the line first and that's what she did. In 2008 when David Neville actually dived to get his bronze, he was said to give a herculean effort. So de Yankees can go F$@k themselves!

I think Michelle is in a similar position to Machel. 3 giants ahead of her, but if any slip, she will be able to pounce. She is the best of the rest IMO. So 4th place is what I expect, but hoping for a medal!!

To add to my post, I would think lane 7 is good for her. Firstly she's not the best curve runner out there, so the gentler the curve, the better. Secondly her technique isn't suited to high pressure situations and being in the middle of the track will be a dog fight coming down the straight. She can run free out there in lane 7.

Spot on again Ave! I'm so proud of her, I know I always knock her technique because I believe she can be the best and have been saying it for years. That aside she has given her all and has made two Olympic sprint finals, she has avoided injury this season also and has just done the nation proud. I know the big three may be out of her reach but this is a stepping stone for her to build on. The ease that she ran that 22.50 in the heats tells me she can run 21.x maybe not tomorrow but definitely in the future.

Even if she does not medal, she made history. If memory serves, she is the only female from TT to feature in a 100m and 200m olympic final. Ato was the last TT athlete. So MLA is on the path to something special.

Interesting analysis Aviator. I never looked at MLA being in lane 7 in the same light. But what we seen with the outside lanes in this Olympics, if you're in lane 7 or 8, it's about going out hard and letting the field chase you. Shaunae Miller won gold by doing so in lane 7. Van Niekerk won gold and broke the WR by doing the same thing. So we will see if MLA has a similar race plan.

I expect another PR and NR from her tonight. And if one of the big 3 mess up, we can be in for a treat.

Can anyone recommend some online links for the Olympics. I usually use Batman but just moved to a new house and although we have a good wifi, it's acting up.

Also, any good site with videos of results. Youtube was great for the last Olympics but not so this time.

Thanks,

Forum, do you think the TF in this Olimpics is fully supported by Rio. I see a lot of empty seats. I have witnessed past Olimpics with bigger stadiums and bigger crowds. Am I wrong on this?
