    I'm glad to see him back but he has a long road back if he is going to have any chance of winning
    medals at the European champs. So much competition now from the younger and older guys. Guliyev
    ran a 19.90 two days ago. It's just hard to understand how a guy that races so little gets hurt so much.
    I hope he can stay healthy the rest of the summer. It's sad to watch him get injured so much. Good luck
    to Christophe and may he surprise us all in the near future.

    Wow - Lemaitre ran 2 races in one day!
    He will need a full month off now to recover.
    Meanwhile, Guliyev ran his 3rd high quality 200m vs international competition, in a week, and still beat Lemaitre.

    lol.......Lemaitre should just focus on the 200, he has a better shot of running 19.9 later in the season...the 100, I believe he wont break 10.1

    Actually that pleases me. It's as if they have a plan - testing his starts/drive etc (100) while seeing how his speed endurance is progressing (200).
    It also means they're confident his body's now going well enough to cope.
    We can only wait and watch from this point.
    He certainly wasn't far off the pace in the 200
