Time to help you along in USATF’s Pick N Win game.
“Help” may not be the word here. I flat-out sucked at picking winners at last week’s Millrose Games. I think I would have done better if I’d made my backup picks my real picks. But here’s what I have for this week…
Men’s 60 meters
Trell Kimmons was third at Millrose, a race which put together pretty much all of the world’s top sprinters who compete indoors. With neither of the two who beat him entered, Kimmons is the favorite. Of the other entrants only Ivory Williams could be considered a threat.
Women’s 60 meters
Lauryn Williams looked pretty good last week at Millrose, showing that she’s come back well from her 2010 layoff. In the absence of any truly strong competition, she’s the pick to make. Make Lisa Barber your backup pick.
Men’s 300 meters
With only four competitors entered it’s hard to go too wrong.
