Osaka Not Up to Doha's Standard

Tough to follow yesterday's Doha meet, but that was the position the Osaka Grand Prix was in this morning (at least this morning my time). Osaka had decent performances but only two one lap races stood out - Jeremy Wariner's 44.69 win in the open 400 and Kerron Clement's 48.60 win over the hurdles. Both efforts put them in the #2 position on the yearly list for the season, and Wariner's mark made him only the second person under the 45 sec barrier this season.

Update from Doha: The times I reported yesterday from the men's 100 were from the heats. A final was run later in the day and found Travis Padgett equaling the world lead with a 10.00 win. That makes him = #1 on the season with Walter Dix - further upping the quality on the Doha meet.
