    Upper body power is very important and helps in the start/acceleration phase.

    It's with legal wind, care about parentheses behind the name, significate a foreign sprinter.

    ok
    à noter que christophe a fait en 2012 un bon 3.92 au 30M et avec un RT de 0.166 dans une course avec vent défavorable donc avec un RT comparable au France ça fait du 3.87 et pourtant dans cette course de 2012, il ne fait que 6.56 au 60M
    à Moscou c'est 3.94 au 30M avec un RT de 0.171

    Il finit en 3.53 les 40 derniers mètres ? C'est lent même avec du vent de face.

    dans cette course il a les pires difficultés pour dépasser vicaut pourtant loin d'être le finisseur qu'il est aujourd'hui, bon rappelons qu'il faisait très froid (14°c) et la piste était mouillée, ça joue aussi sur la performance, mais sa fin de course était loin d'être bonne de toute façon car les mauvaises conditions sont pour tout le monde

    I think, Christophe limps on his right leg. You can see it in the video from RCSMAN at 2:25/2:26 and further.
    It was after the race : (Facebook official CL)
    Malheureusement je n'ai pas pu prendre part à la finale à cause d'une douleur subie juste après la course lors de la décélération après la ligne d'arrivée. Rien de bien grave selon les médecins où je devrais reprendre les entraînements normalement dans quelques jours et etre prêt pour la suite de la saison

    Christophe Lemaitre will decide on Saturday of his participation in European championships (in July 6-10th in Amsterdam) where he is registered on 100m, 200m, and 4x100m. Suffering from a lesion in the right calf, he trained on Thursday. " It goes better and better, explains his trainer, Pierre Carraz. But we shall take no risk.

    a lesion usually a reference to a cut/wound not a muscle or tendon strain or tear.

    it's official, christophe won't run in european championship


    "I wanted to go there but I would not have been 100%. There, we are going to be able to continue to work for Rio", confide Lemaitre, who should participate in the Leagues of diamond of Monaco (in July 15th) and of London (in July 22-23rd).

    What a disaster. So sad that Lemaitre cannot go but his injuries have been a problem for several years now and it's not just
    due to age. I won't go beyond that. Just a terrible situation. If I had my choice I would rather have him run in the Euro Champs than the Olympics. At least he has a chance for medals. In Rio he most likley won't win anything.

    Christophe Lemaitre has decided on Saturday evening, after a last training and a discussion with his coaches. Even there’s no more pain after his muscle injury, which appeared on 100 m heats during the French championships, he has chosen to not compete in the European championships in Amsterdam next week.
    “I feel no pain but I’m not well prepared, he said. I missed three big training sessions, I cannot run on a maximum speed. It’s not necessary to be in the championships if I’m not efficient.”
    On Monday and Tuesday, Christophe could only walk and run slowly. He couldn’t work to be on the top and get medals in the European championships. But he hopes he can train correctly in few days. “I’ll work with the feeling. I’ll see if the pain is back when I run faster and faster.”
    Christophe hopes he could race well for the Diamond League meeting in Monaco the 15th of July (200 m). He’ll also be on the start in London the 22th of July (100 or 200 m).

    Lemaitre is a heartbreaker.
    If you're rooting for him, he will disappoint you 9 out 1o times.
    I am not rooting against him, but I've learned better than to pin any sort of hope on him.

    WL and 55: I agree Teeters has form issues especially his foot angle and excessive ankle pronation. But 9.995 can't be overlooked.
    Sorry, I posted this in the wrong thread.

    Christophe Lemaitre feels better. The muscle injury is over. Last week, he trained well: two days with though sessions and on day off, twice. “It was okay, I’m in good shape, I feel no pain, he says. I can run fast on 200 m in Monaco on Friday. It would be okay for me, there’s no reason to fail.”

    During European championships, Christophe appreciated the silver medal for french 4×100 m. “The handover were better in final. It gives confidence for Olympic Games. But we’ll have to take more risks if we want to get a medal.”

    Next week, Christophe will also run a 200 m in London (the 22th) against Usain Bolt. His last race before OG.

    Based on the start list, seasons bests etc for the DL Monaco Lemaitre should win this race or at the very worst finish 2nd or 3rd, anything other placing should be considered a failure against a rather weak field.....

    Cheers....
