    that's SIX sub 10.10 sprinters in Japan this season - no wonder they are a relay prospect.
    In perspective, SEVEN Japanese sprinters were ahead of Lemaitre this year

    Yamagata's time was actually better than Kiryu's sub 10 adjusted for wind.
    I say both these guys in Canberra on March 11th and they looked great then.
    Interestingly they both ran and won a B or C final before entering the "A" Final where they finished 1 and 2. In contrast our cotton-wooled, precious little Aussies rested up for the A Final rather than work hard for 2 races.
    I think the general work ethic in Japanese society bodes well for their sports approach too

    I would love to see Lemaitre in a race with these 7 Japanese sprinters, and watch him come in dead last.
    Because losing to 7 Japanese sprinters in one race might really wake him up!!
    As it is, he seems resigned and accepting of his medicare 100m times and losing to black sprinters.

    Christophe Lemaitre is looking for gold at the European Championships next year.
    He mentions that minor injuries has held him back; but he also shows that he doesn't really have the focus and drive one would expect from a championship athlete. He has been "working with" a club level basketball team. I wonder what the hell that means....besides meaning he hasn't been completely focused on sprinting.

    I think it has to do with his College courses "Sports Management" . He is allowed to have other interests aside from sprinting, itlooks like he is smart enough to prepare himself for his Post Track career.

    I do not think he has a hope in hell of placing well in 2018 Euro Champs unless he changes his training now!!!!! All the guys mentioned in this article can beat him handily... They dont mention Tortu in this article but he is another that will be pressing Lemaitre or beating him next year...

    It is nice to see a world-class sprinter (Christophe still is, despite his slowing) engaging in normal activities this time of year. The Jamaicans are already a couple of weeks into their heavy blood-doping portion of the year that will tail off shortly in order to pass tests before the season starts next spring.

    If they can, the testers have caught up to the cheats(at the moment). This is the real reason why the Jamaicans bombed out in London and times were mortal looking. Jason Livermore was caught for SARMS and this was the new PED that sprinters were using for years to get the sub 9.8X times and now that can be detected.

    I found results from an Under-18 meet in South Africa, with a kid named Maritz Pieters, running a 10.24.
    Even with no wind indicated, that's a fast time for a 17 year old.

    I may be in the minority here, but I root for Asian athletes. They really aren't much different than we are. The media and Marxists hate them because they go against the "oppressed by the white man" minority narrative. They are like the letter Y. Asians CAN be minorities, but only when put up against a white guy for political gain. Otherwise they are white people with different shaped eyes. Just like Y can be a vowel, but is usually a consonant.

    Blacks hate Asians, and Jeremy Lin has some horror stories about the things they say to him on the court.

    But will and do Asians help us and are they on our side when they see the destruction other races do to our race? My brother works with a lot of Asians who come to America, get good jobs, and benefit from civilization that white people built. Are they appreciative? Hell no, they hate whites (they openly admit to it) and only look out for themselves. Because they also have problems with other races and hate them as well does not mean they will help our cause in any way. While I can admire their racial nationalism, I can't root for them or their cause.

    in about 10-15 years it wont matter if we like or hate Asians especially Chinese as China is slowly taking over the world piece by piece. Trump knows this and he is trying to stop it but Americans on the whole don't understand this and fight him at every turn. Chinese in China do not hate whites they actually revere them, it is the Chinese that live in the west that hate whites as we have not treated them well overall. We openly mock them, call them derogatory names and hate them when they take jobs that most whites wont consider doing and their work ethic is far superior to us westerns..... They are not white with different shaped eyes...they are Chinese and are totally different than Caucasians.

    As far as Asian sprinters go I support them but not as much as I support Whites. In China track athletes are not held in high esteem by the local population unless they are winning or making finals. They actually rank below soccer, table tennis, badminton, swimming, diving, basketball, volleyball in popularity.

    I asked a Chinese friend in China if he knew who Su Bingtian was and he had no idea, yet he knew who a third rate black basketball player was in the CBA. Funny enough though when I am in China on business I try to keep up with my track workouts at local schools etc and I always get great reception from the locals who are jogging. They treat me like a celebrity even though I am a late 50's masters athlete not a rock star lol

    Cheers.....

    Rohan Browning has been a force for the last 3 years. He is also in a photo finish with Jack Hale from a couple of years ago. The kid is for real. This race had so much incredible talent but they all underperformed in their 1st race of the year except for
    Rohan Browning. He should go sub 10.10 if his form holds true as this is his first race with on wind. Wow! Here is the video.

    yes, a couple of our better guys having their first 100 run of the season. Several of them are some weeks off their best but it will be good to see the remainder of their clashes as Comm Game selection time creeps up.
    BTW, I'll post this in the 2018 season thread too

    got my fingers crossed for Hale, he always looks like he is at warp 9 when he sprints. I dont know how Tre runs with those huge thighs he reminds me of Jared Connoughton from Canada, short in stature but huge legs.
