    I think Zharnel can take so much from that. You see so many athleteswho have great seasons leading up to a championships and don’t quite completeit and he has.

    He’s done incredibly well and I think his attitude was amazingin that interview as well.

    I think Hughes will be frustrated with that. Fourth positionis always a frustrating place to finish and it is not one of his best times. I knowthe 200m is his baby but it was an incredibly competitive race.

    A double for Noah Lyles. He looked so good. When your main contendersare all outside you and you havea finish like him, once you get to their shoulders and you come off the bendyou must feel very confident. He showed that.

    An incredibly smooth technician – he’s just so lovely towatch.
