Am I wrong to suggest that Jareem needs to put on a little more muscle. Seeing that he is doubling in the 200 and 400.Correct me if I am wrong.

Possibly. Depends where. Remember when Richard Thompson dropped the weight. It ended up working against him. I think the training program and tailoring to the athlete is key. If Jereem training program requires more strength, then yes more muscle might be needed.

I asked him yesterday if he's a 400m runner now - he said "no, but I'll still dabble in it."

Yeah and the question to you AB is, what event does he have a better chance at medalling in? I think that will determine what he does. He cant do the 200 and 400 at the same time.

Saw the Bermuda Games yesterday. Man it was nice. The athletes struggled because of the high winds. The Bermuda stadium is constructed such that in the final 100, the athletes are running with the wind in their faces. As oppose to the wind at their backs. It was one of the most interesting meets I have ever witness. The competition was keen. And our boy Ato, ably assisted by Sanya were on top of the game in their commentaries.

First off, congrats to "The Dream" for pulling off the second spot. But the Bahamian who won,  not easy. Also congrats to Kirani James. He is a beast. Our boy Machel came in 5th. But the season now start. I saw Ato protege, Williams ?,  came in 2nd, I think. First time seeing her run. She is fast but short(no disrespect). I wished we had a female of her caliber.

But the race of the meet was the men 100. Man, how the hell JA does produce sprinters so, I don't know. This guy, Blake is running for Canada. And he beat Johan Blake, Lyles and Knighton. I know is only one race I have seen of him. But if he continues like this, he can cancel the Italian job in the future.

Nice, nice. Good job Ato and Sanya.

What is your opinion of the Canadian Blake? Is he a real deal or flash n the pan so to say?

Nobody losing any sleep over him. Maybe he will be in some races but he's not a real 100m threat

Jereem ran a pb in the 400m yesterday. 44.79. That was only good enough to warrant 5th place. He did not time his race well at all. I think he's on to something big if he makes the a
necessary adjustments. Regardless good pb.

Jereem!!! 19.83 at the National championships. Those 400s are paying off.

19.83 is the 5th fastest in the world this year, very impressive.
On the question of muscle, there aren't many sprinters out there that are that slim. Slim might be optimal for him, I have no clue. Michael Norman who is the best 400 runner this year said last off season he hit the heavy weights hard.
Norman also has run 19.83 in the 200 this year.

19.83 in those conditions are an indicator that he is on to something special. I think he'll break 19.77 in 3 weeks. I'm sure Ato ain't going to hate if he does.

When I seen Jereem win the 400m indoor, and the huge pb in the 400m outdoor, I knew he was going to put down a statement in the 200m this year.

Being slim is working. He's actually a lanky runner at 6"3 I believe. It's all about what works best for the athlete.
