Kerron Clement winning his gold medal in 47.91! Photo by PhotoRun.net.

Kerron Clement took fourth in Helsinki with his debut on the world stage. In 2007, in Osaka, Kerron won strong. In 2008, he lost to Angelo Taylor. 2009 is his year. His hurdling has improved. His fitness is higher and his endurance, as shown by his form over the last two hurdles, shows he is a class by himself! Mark my word, Kerron Clement will get the world record in the 400 meter hurdles. He has the speed and the endurance to make a go of this event. His name is already on it and we look forward to seeing him in 2010, 2011 and 2012!


Day four of the WC Berlin was a wonderful day of athletics. Here are my favorite moments:

1. In the first round of the women's 1,500 meters, all three Americans, Anna Willard, Christin Wurth Thomas and Shanno Rowbury got through. Shannon had some bumping and had to file a protest,but she did get in. The semi finals coming up, will be brutal.

2. In the 200 meter first rounds, Shawn Crawford, Charles Clark and Wallace Spearmon all moved through. Usain Bolt looked a little sick, but, what would one expect after the WR in the 100 meters ? After the race, Usain said he was just a little
under the weather....

3. The men's steeplechase was really a battle between Ezekiel Kemboi, Richard Mateelong, Bouabdallah Tahir and Paul Koech. The pace was strong, with Ruben
Ramolefi of South Africa leading through 2:41.90 for the first kilometer and then
Paul Koech leading in 5:22.79, through the second-almost exactly the same pace!

The final kilometer, run in 2:38 saw the three Kenyans and the French North African duel to the finish. Tahri towered over the Kenyans, and it was not until after the last barrier when Tahri finally got past Paul Koech to take the bronze.

Ezekiel Kemboi just blistered teh last 200 meters with Richard Mateelong in pursuit. I think they were quite surprised to see Tahri that close! What an amazing race, four men under 8:02 in the steeple!

4. We said it before and Sanya would say later, that the 400 meter race that Sanya Richards ran was flawless, and that her gold medal takes a huge amount of pressure off her back. Shericka Williams ran a personal best for the silver and Antonia Krivoshapka of Russia took the bronze in 49.71. Osaka Champ and Beijing champ Christine Ohuruogu was relegated to fifth.

5. The crowd went nuts when javelin goddess Steffi Nerius of Germany unseated Barbora Spotakova of the Czech republic, with a huge 67.30m throw, winning by nearly a meter! Barbora Spotakova was the silver and Maria Abakimova of Russia was the bronze. The crowd of 55,000 went stark raving nuts, as Nerius is a huge sports hero in Germany and this would be her last World Champs. Nerius has been world class for the better part of two decades. A classy finish to a classy athlete.

6. Phillips Idowu of Great Britian just did it. His 17.73m triple jump, the world leader, made Nelson Evora of Portugal (17.55) and Alexis Copello of Cuba (17.36m), push and push and push, to no avail. Phillips got out the big one and he took the gold!

7. Blanka Vlasic, Ariane Freiderich both moved to the final, with clearances of 1.95m, as did Amy Acuff of the US.

8. Kerron Clement owned the 400 meter hurdles, running his own race and defending his title in 47.91. Javier Culson of Puerto Rico, his island's first finalist, set a national record of 48.09 in second and Bershawn Jackson took the bronze in 48.23. The level of the playing field in the 400 meter hurdles is moving up!
