i think wariner has a bit of fear racing merritt over 200 meters. merritt has a much better pr (19.98 vs 20.19) and has already popped a good 400 this year as well. hopefully this doesn't turn into them ducking each other like we have seen with so many other top athletes. basically i think wariner got scared and pulled out of the meet. it has to be a huge boost to merritt's confidence, he ran a good time and destroyed the field.
