1. looks like the anchor leg for the US tied up really badly in the last 50.

Hard to believe he could blow that lead in a 400 though.

2. Totally disagree! The US Team didn't blow it...

I think you should give that amazing team from T&T some credit for overcoming the Americans!

3. Trinidad et al were able to take advantage (largely due to their anchor leg) of what

happened to the US anchor leg. I give them credit for that. But having experience in track it was clear
the US anchor leg tied up badly.

8. Yeah. The USA men are no longer dominant in track.

But the USA women are keeping the flame, not dominant, but competitive in every sprint event.

Looks like the USA men could have a budding superstar. A high school kid in Texas is setting national records in the 100 meters and is a dominant long jumper and also in the 200 meters. If he stays on course and gets better with age (he is just 18), he could surpass Carl Lewis in the 100m, 200m and long jump. The kid also ran the 400m and 800m and was excellent there before focusing on the sprints and long jump. In video he appears to have unfathomable topend speed, but his start is still a little ragged. He is winning races by meters all the same.

7. I didn't re-watch to verify this but...

it looked to me like T&T lost a lot of ground on both the second and third handoffs. With good handoffs, they would have won by 15 yards.
