Badernack or however u spell his name won the final.
Marko Bartho, these (Lyles and Gatlin) only ran the prelims.
Were those times in Heats or Sections? There actually is a difference🤔 If they were in heats, what were their times in the Final?
Wonder what kind a times mi country 🇯🇲 men dem a run!
Nicola Reid I believe Chris T…ran in the 100m heats (someone can confirm)…but of course that s speed work training for him. Anxiously awaiting him in the 400m
Believe he ran 10:++???
Fastest Jamaican at the meet was San Jay Givans 10.21 wind legal.
Hugh Powell 10.2 legal not bad, remember these guy weren’t competing for awhile.
Hurdley Freemantle 9.9 in any conditions is still 9.9
Folks these times are wind aided…wind was 4.0…
Wes Leonard Seriously? 9.9 with 4.0m/s equals 10.2. Huge difference. Doesn’t matter though because these are first races in a long time.
Hurdley Freemantle The wind reading was .04
Hurdley Freemantle oh damn, wind really that high
Wes Leonard you clearly dont know track and field. I’d recommend you do your research on wind assistance and the sport….
Jorge Flash Vazquez thx you!
Gerald Owens per the article: “The 200m and 4x100m relay gold medallist at last year’s World Championships ran 9.93s on his first outing of 2020 at the Showdown in Otown meet in Clermont, Florida.
The time was not a legal one with the wind measured at 4 m/s, twice the limit”. It was 4.0m/s. here is the article you can read it for yourself: https://www.olympicchannel.com/en/stories/news/detail/noah-lyles-breaks-10-seconds-100m-2020-seasonal-debut-florida/
Junior Q. Crossley yes…check the article I posted
Hurdley Freemantle I was at the meet and it was .04There was no wind and they ran on a wet track
Gerald Owens I dont care if you were in the race, you are WRONG. This is what is being officially reported. Your beef should not be with me, it should be with all these “erroneous news reports” then? Unless you were personally manning the wind gauge at the meet…I will go with the official reporting. Here is the Worlds athletics site’s recording of his time with +4.0m/s as I’ve noted. You can go check it for yourself….
Gerald Owens somebody suffers from dyslexia
Hey dummies if it was the wind everybody times would be fast don’t you think. So stop with the wind crap.
Not if the wind was swirling. That’s a fairly common occurrence.
But Lyles and Gatlin lost the final to Bednarek?
No. Gatlin and Lyles didn’t contest the final.
Converts to 10.10 for Lyles and 10.16 for Gatlin
They had a wind storm pushing them, those times convert to like 10.3 with legal wind.
Omar Brown def not 10.3 10.2 low
