I give it a 0/10
And as for anybody suggesting that the USA was embarrassed or made to look like crap, you are either trolling, or retarded.
They ran 37.04 to equal the huge previous WR, absolutely crushing the previous, high-quality AR. Nobody else in history has ever been even close to this Jam and this USA team.
And, they did this with an inferior 2nd exchange, and a sub-par Gay. Actually, that is unbelievable to me (funky track and/or timing). If the timing was accurate, however, they can go sub-37 based on just running a healthy Gay! Take off another .05 for a better 2nd exchange, and holy crap.
Bailey blew nothing. All that can be asked from anybody is to perform to their potential, which he absolutely did. Running the second-fastest 4x100m relay in recorded history is no reason for apology, it is huge!
Look for Bailey to be the NEXT serious USA anchor. I think that Drummond was RIGHT ON, putting Bailey on anchor this time around, to introduce him to his future role as leader of the USA 4x100m.
Who will be the team of the future for the USA? Right now, I can only think of 2 guys who I would consider locks--Demps, and Bailey.
This was a HUGE year for Bailey. Does the guy run a decent 200? He seems a bit thick, a bit lumbering to me. Maybe if he thinned down a bit, and became more wiry like Bolt, he would have better turnover and better drive phase. He's still maturing, it will be interesting to see in what direction he progresses.
