My instincts tell me that either gold medal is likely to find itself in either American or British hands.

Not ruling out the likes of Morozov, the Brasilians but I think the 50 will be between Proud and whichever American is “up” on the day. Likewise, whilst not discounting the possibilities of others crashing the 100 party but I see Scott as the main threat to the Americans.

McEvoy ?? I think he has a lot to prove after Rio that he is the fastest man when it really counts rather than just domestically. His 2017 showing to date haven’t exactly made any particular case that a change is at hand.
