The starlists have just been produced, and I drew lane four for the race tomorrow at 8pm
Stockholm time. I will be right between Dayron Robles (lane three) and late entrant Terrence Trammell (lane five). I honestly believe that this match-up in the 110 hurdles is comparable to the line up they have in the 100 meter dash with Bolt vs Powell vs Atkins.
I am feeling very good for this race, the weather isn't looking very good, but that doesn't really matter. My main focus that Brooks wants me to emphasize for this race is to be more alert at the start and to execute in the critical zone as usual. I'm feeling that I should be able to run somewhere down in the 13.0 range, I will see how the warm-up goes tomorrow. I am going to follow the same regiment as the trials. I'm not feeling very nervous at this time, my emotion is really that of excitement. I am looking forward to racing against Robles and Terrence while we are at our best. The last time I faced Robles, we both ran our most sub-par races of the season, we both have improved markedly since June 1st.
We will see what happens tomorrow night!
