Bolt smoked everyone else but 10.04?
He used to run sub 10 in his sleep.
-0.8 for Bolt is nothing. I still think he would have only run around 9.99-10.00 in still wind.. maybe 9.90-9.95 with a whole lot of help from the wind.

Slow, but not too slow. Some guys like Doc about 0.2 behind their best this year.
I think Bolt will survive.

Is that a bad time for him? 10:04 is a pretty slow mile time for a guy named Bolt! Haha. Seriously though, I used to do 9:00 pace for 10k. I could probably go 10:00 pace in a half-mary.
I disagree. Nesta Carter doesn't have the mentality to perform at his best in Major finals...or trials. The Jamaican trio for Daegu will be -for me- Bolt, Blake and Asafa.

You heard it here first.
Yohan Blake is going to beat Bolt. He was faster at an earlier age. He is noticeably bigger right now, but should lean out as the season progresses. Yohan's progressions have been solid year to year and is primed to continue.
I think the Jamaicans are going to sweep the medals with Blake, Bolt and Carter and might even get the top 4 with Powell.
Bolt hasn't looked as relaxed as prior and remember, he was successful training for longer distances and then running shorter. I think he is feeling the pressure of running with Yohan on his heels(more like in the lead). He was dominant early and would cruise times most would dream about. Now he is racing hard every race and looking worse.
I still love Bolt's swag and attitude, but Blake is going to be superior by the time September rolls around.
The 4x100m record might get put in a range that will be untouchable for decades though.
