Just to add up to article, Guilherme Guido 53.35 is a South American Textile Best, just 0.11 of his shiny suit record.

Fratus told in post-race interview he wasn’t unhappy with his silver.He told he is in the first week of his taper(of expected 3 to 4) and there isn’t much about he could do to be faster.It is a needed trade to be faster at Worlds.(My take:OK, but with a 0.82 RT?Hawke will be pissed, you can be sure about that… and near 4 weeks of taper?WTF?!If I make a sport steadily and stops two weeks, I will turn into a balloon)

Eugene

DDias, sprinters need more time for tapering, since they do more intense stuff and lift heavy. It also takes more time to fully recover for older athletes compared to teenagers. So 3 or 4 weeks is OK for him. I believe “taper” is not “stop”, so dude won’t turn into a balloon 🙂
