That is a stupid quote. They wanted Wariner to go up to the 800 and they only do that with white sprinters. I go to that message board all of the time. Some of the posters are ok but too many use caste speak and they are great at putting down white sprinters.
Lemaitre ran 20.11 in his first race back after injury. He hadn't raced in three weeks. He is number one on the european season lists for the 200 meters. I'm sure his coach said to take it easy on the corner. This wasn't for a championship so there was no need to risk injury but running all out on the curve. I'm very happy with his time and his closing speed. This is only the beggining. He will go sub 20 without a doubt again soon. Anyone that doubts that doesn't know track. A sub 10 in the 100 would be alot more difficult but he is still by far the best white sprinter on the planet. No one else other than Gemeli(who some don't count as white) can do what Lemaitre does. So we need to support the kid and not always bash him.
Good race today. I'm excited for Saturday in Paris. A sub 10.10 at this point would be a good starting point with only 2 days rest and coming off an injury. Come on PepeLeFlew!:becky:
YOHAN BLAKE 20.48 !
