    My prediction in Daegu. Lemaitre 2nd place in 9.86. If Im wrong I will never post here again. As I plan on buying the Redskins and start an all white secondary. I am not kidding.

    WOW[​IMG] mattharper . your bet is very very risky.
    But i can tell you that is not impossible, and well with 9.86 i think that is possible 2nd place in Daegu.

    The big doubt is that Lemaitre can make this time in the final...

    bk21 and Twinsen9,

    I don't think those are girls fantasizing about Christophe. Those are most likely men fantasizing about Christophe on that website. That looks to be a homosexual website. Look around in the different sections of that website and you will figure it out!

    Really i imagine a final like Beijing in Daegu: Bolt winning with big advantage and 4 or 5 runners more in times about 9.8x-9.9x.
    Lemaitre has try to be around 9.90 for get medal in 100...

    Words from Asafa Powell about his next race in Lausanne(against our LEMAITRE):
    "Hopefully I can be 100 percent by then, because I was not training properly for the past couple of weeks"

    A good moment for see if Lemaitre really can fight with Powell this year...

    Lausanne have a good reputation as a fast place.

    Maybe Christophe can run really near 9,90 with a good wind.

    Yes, Twinsen9 is fast track. There Powell made 9.72 and other runners ran very well too in the past.
    If the weather is good we could see very fast race, hehe i have a lot of feel see the race [​IMG]

    About Bruxelles : maybe vs Bolt. But it's not sure.

    So, Bruxelles is for Diamond League. I think Christophe won't be alone...

    What kills me is the number of Jamaicans running sub 10 seconds. They have about 10 guys! If blacks are so fast shouldn't the USA have 10 guys running consistently sub 10? Our black population is 10 times what Jamaica's is...and Nigeria should have 50 guys running sub 10..I doubt the USA will have one guy in the 100m final at the WC. Gay looks spent.....The Jamaicans are definitely doping.....Mullings is a convicted dopers. I mean they've had some 40 yr old women making Olympic sprint finals. It is ridiculous

    Evidently, the Jamaican doping program is the most advanced, and the sanctioning bodies do a miserable job of trying to keep up. That's my 2 cents, anyway.

    If they don't test for drugs he will probably be right. They'll all be hopped up on PEDs and run sub 9.80. I'd just like to see CL go sub 9.90...losing to Jamaicans doesn't mean much since they have no testing program.

    </div><div>a beginning of response lies in the fact that all jamaicans tries athletics while americans disperse on dozens of sports.. it's like Rugby in New Zealand or Soccer in Brazil..</div><div>anyway this is not the place to discuss that WL started a thread about the subject to discuss the issue</div>

    it's more than just jamaica, bailey also trains with bolt, the trinidadian, and he runs very fast too, because he is on the same drugs

    umm in my opinion, i prefer talk about athletics that about drugs.
    For me Bolt is clean(is a prodigy since 15 years, world champion junior), the rest well im not sure 100% but until that somebody is banned i dont go talk bad about him.

    By the other hand, i dont see many rivals for Lemaitre in 100m, if he get 9.90 minimum 4th or 5th place in Daegu and if he get sub20 in 200m perhaps a possible medal.

    Regards to everybody

    i made a nightmare where chrisophe lemaitre false started, it was a really frustrating nightmare

    i hope it wasn't the kind of dreams that happens later in reality

    i still think it will be a very big test for him, and i think he will be very nervious
