#3 all time behind Michael Johnson's World best (30.85) and Usain Bolt's 30.97
It's not a bad time at least. It's .2 off of Wariner's best (31.73) and ahead of Xavier Carter by .02.
Good grief ... Makwala was even with Merritt with maybe 80m to go, but was absolutely going backwards the last 50, all the way down to 5th.
You'd think the 300 could be his event, given his usual style of running the 400, haha. I guess his style is fading at the end no matter the distance. Disappointing after his recent 44.85 and 44.97 (he usually isn't under 45 until much later in the year).
All that said, I have no idea if 31.91 is a decent 300 time or not. As a rarely run distance the times have little reference point for me.

well MJ never broke 10 in the 100m, only managed a 10.09
van has himself a 9.98, just wait to see what he does in the 400 at rio
