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
Russia
United States
Jamaica

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.

    You matched my predictions of the two 4X100 perfectly. Jamaica has no chance in the men’s 4X400m unless one of the two majors drop out. For the women’s 4X400m I believe Jamaica can get second if they all execute well, run smart races.

    For Jamaica to win silver the Williams’ will have to run super fast legs, because the next two girls are not very strong this year
