  1. Its a good test for Lyles’ 100m speed and Blake to assess, if he can remain relevant with younger sprinters fastly emerging.

    • Patricia Daughma I don’t believe there are folks who hate athletes, but those athletes are their least favourite.

  2. My money is on yohan, ready to take back his place in men’s sprinting. My neck is on the chopping block I’m starting the wagon I won’t be a wagonist after he performs.

  3. Blake no all of us count you out…many of us love u no matter what…thumbs up to you…give it your best shot…

  4. Its a good test for Lyles’ 100m speed and Blake to assess, if he can remain relevant with younger sprinters fastly emerging.

  5. Louie Foster he had appendicitis going into the olympics, if he did 9.9+in that condition he can do 9.7+. Now that sorted out.

  6. But Blake I think has retired or is not really a main contender in the 100m anymore, so what kind of showdown is that 🤣😅😂
