Breaking Time Barriers


In a couple hours the clock will strike midnight and we'll enter a New Year.! As with each year, the first day of January marks new ground. A New Year. With this in mind, and given the unbelievable number of amazing performances (especially in the men's sprints) in 2006, what athletes will break time barriers in 2007?


We have lots of candidates:

  • Kerron Clement in the 400m Hurdles…this seems inevitable, it's just a matter of time.
  • Asafa Powell in the 100m or maybe even Tyson Gay.
  • Tyson Gay, Xavier Carter or Wallace Spearmon in the 200m.
  • Liu Xiang in the 110H.

What do you think?
