The predictions I am about to make are based solely on current form. As a coach, I cannot realistically make predictions on history and the amount of heart an athlete performs with.
In discussing sports, there should be no place for emotions and though we may love and revere a particular athlete, there are key elements, such as training, fitness and technique, which cannot be overlooked, in coming to a conclusion.
Please note that my predictions may be amended after the semifinals.
With that said, here are my predictions for what I consider the main events:
Men’s 100m Top 3
Shelly Ann Fraser- Pryce
Wade Van Niekerk
Men’s 110m Hurdles
Pascal Martinot- Lagarde
Women’s 100m Hurdles
Men’s 400m Hurdles
Women’s 400m Hurdles
