This event is tougher to call each and every day! Suffice it to say, the names to watch in the final are Yohan Blake, Usain Bolt, Christophe Lemaitre, and now, 2003 World Champ Kim Collins! Read on!
In semi-final one, Yohan Blake took off and blasted the field, winning in 9.95. Walter Dix caught the field and pushed through for second in 10.05. A false start was charged to Dwain Chambers, European Champion, and Britain’s dq nightmare continues!
In semi-final two, Usain Bolt gets out and runs 10.05, looking great! In second was France’s Christophe Lemaitre, who ran 10.11.
In semi-final three, Kim Collins, the 2003 World Champion, won here in 10.08, while Nesta Carter was second in 10.16.
So, my final picks for the Men’s 100 meters: Bolt, Blake, Lemaitre, Dix to spoil.
