    I think for Xie to shake hands with the Japanese sprinter shows extreme class on his part. In China the government does all it can to continue to fester hatred of the Japanese. The guy who he caught and past was shutting down as he thought he had the race won, he was more concerned at looking at the cameras at the finish line lol.

    This is the 100m at the London Diamond League this past weekend.
    Koike of Japan came 5th in 9.98, but was leading the race until the last 10 or 15 meters.
    Watch the slow motion footage towards the end of the clip. Impressive run from Koike.

    2nd placegetter Miguel Francis was actually fairly effusive in his congratulations. Everyone else wondered "how ...?"

    Anyone have any idea where Bingtian Su has been? I was kind of looking forward to seeing if he’d be able to best his 9.91 this year. So far I see he has run only once and clocked a 10.05 back in May which is a great season opener. I read an article from May that talked about how he was going to run a lot this year, so I fear maybe he had an injury or something but I can’t find any info on it.

    Yes, I have been wondering about him too. He was originally scheduled in some Diamond League meets, but no showed. It must be an injury.

    In terms of just numbers, Asians have passed up Caucasians in terms of the 100. They have more sub 10 performers and a faster top time. Of course, they don't have to contend with caste psychology, i.e., evil white men, slavery, holocaust, slaughter of native Americans, institutional racism, etc., etc.

    Bingtian Su 9.91
    Xie Zhenye 9.97
    Yoshihide Kiryu 9.98
    Yuki Koike 9.98
