The 200 meter rounds were very tough. With Van Niekerk running the 400 meters before the 200 meters, he was quite tired. Ramil Guliyev, who focused on the 200 meters, ran well in the rounds and was not in many media viewer's predictions. Yet, Guliyev was well prepared, and he ran down Van Niekerk, who, being a human, was a bit worn out after the 400 meters and the 200 meter rounds.

Jereem Richards, who has run well in NCAA competitions, was the pick for the bronze by Maurice Greene, on our Mo & Larry show.
