Subject: RE: Bolt wins Oslo in 9.79, but....POWELL!!!
Powell 9.85 (+0.6)
RT's were OK this time
New PR for Warner, 10.20 for 4th place.
I know Bolt won, but POWELL!
Who the F saw that coming? Bolt was better in Rome, but Powell is showing the kind of improvement one wants to see.
His race looked the same as ever, except that he kept moving from 70-100m, even as Bolt passed him. Actually, I think that Powell stayed at his max top speed longer than he usually does, maybe all the way to 75 or 80m, which is where I think he improved by the .02 His start looked just a bit more ragged than usual, it will be nice to see a slow-mo.
This was a 9.88 adjusted, compared to his 9.90 adjusted against Gatlin.
Bolt's was a 9.82 adjusted, .08 off his 9.74 adjusted from Rome. Probably attributable to his having gripped in order to pass Powell. Hard to tell from the camera angle, but he didn't look to be cycling as well as in Rome, trying too hard for the win.
Damn Bolt is fast, I thought that Powell had him this time.
Anybody know what the temperature was like?
