NAIROBI (KEN): World 400m hurdles champion Nicholas Bett has downplayed his poor form on the Diamond League circuit and has said he will “do wonders” in Rio next month, informs Capital FM. “I will do wonders in the Olympics, of course but the two Americans have proved to be tough this season. I have used the Diamond League to gauge myself and in training, I have polished all the grey areas and I am confident and ready for Rio,” he said.
RunBlogRun opines: The 400 meter hurdles is still open. Kerron Clement is coming around into shape. The last two hurdles in London were, well brilliant event for Mr. Clement. Clement typically looks superstar until those last two hurdles, when, for the 400 meter hurdler, those last 2 get about a foot higher and lactate in the legs feel like an entire pro football defensive line is sitting one athlete’s back. Nicholas Bett, the World Champ in 2015, will be in the thick of it in Rio.
