With the highly anticipated IAAF World Championships only a few weeks away, World Track and Field Web Site has put together a group with our own predictions based on who we believe have the strongest chances of winning medals in Berlin, Germany.
Breaking things down into groups will make it a little more interesting for you our viewers, as you will be able to interact more on specific distances and field events. Today it’s all about the excitement of the unexpected relay races. Hopefully you will join in with your very own scoops – maybe there is something to learn that was missed.
Men – 4x100m
Trinidad & Tobago
Medal Dark-horse: Great Britain
World-Track Dig: If Yohan Blake makes the team no one in the world can match him on the second leg and then with safe changes, Asafa Powell will anchor Jamaica to another world record.
Women – 4x100m
World-Track Dig: Jamaica will be their only challenge here. If they get the baton around, this is another world record.
Men – 4x400m
World-Track Dig: No one can match the Americans here. With Wariner and Merritt running so well, the race will be for the silver and bronze.
Women – 4x400m
World-Track Dig: USA are the favourite, but I smell an upset with Russia coming out on top. What can I say I love living on the edge.
