Very interesting to see different countries criteria and the national trials, the UK trials were OK but they seem to struggle, but the US trials was on another level, they really are passionate about their athletes and push for them unlike in the UK. The criteria to qualify in USA was sub 10 seconds? correct me if im wrong. Justin gatlin won a good time. Jamaica trials was intense also, unfortunately for bolt's injury he couldn't compete, but yohan blake is not at the level to threaten bolt but gatlin definitely is getting back to his old self.

i've only seen the US trials but ya they are intense. Gatlin basically owns the "old farts sprinting thread". Man he's flying. Crazy to think he won gold in 2004 and is about to challenge everyone again in 2016. For a young guy, Bromell is impressive too.

I really hope Bolt is healthy come August.

female sprinter falls and is just devastated. i think she fell in 2015 too.

Kim Collins is injured now and probably wouldn't have got to go to the Olympics due to political reasons, but he ran a PB of 9.93 at 40 years of age, which is just mindblowing.

"Kim Collins runs 9.93 PB and masters WR

Ageless wonder Kim Collins ran a PB and St. Kitts and Nevis record of 9.93 (+1.9) at a meeting in Bottrop, Germany, to become the first 40-year-old to go sub-10 seconds for 100m.

The 2003 world champion, who ran his previous PB of 9.96 in London aged 38, beat USA’s Joe Morris with a 10.15 PB and Britain’s Adam Gemili with a 10.19 season opener".
