Yes i think Mark lewis Francis can win the commonwealth Games, and am going to go as far as saying he will win the Games. And yes even if Asafa Powell is there.
Now ive got reason, behind my thinking. Its a combination of things.
Asafa Powell will be the main favourite for the champs, and presuming, there’s always threats like Kim Collins, Frater, Zakarie, and others.
You see, i don’t look at life and sport in black and white.
since 2003 Mark Lewis Francis has done nothing but piss me off. I think Mark Lewis Francis can run 9.8xx.
Providing he has done the training, other people know this as well, why do you think Gatlin wanted to train with Lewis-Franics, they know there is a beast there, Gatlin knows this and has one eye on Francis, maybe there was plan behind Gatlins offer
Mark Lewis Francis in my mind is the fastest junior the world has seen, his times ---- on, anyone elses 6.51 at 60m, and 9.97 100m 2001. Plus his training was immature too.
He has flashes of greatness, that last leg 4x100m, Greene would of run down 99.9% of sprinters out there. And he that, and i know he was not in the best possible shape.
I think Asafa Powell is weak mentally, i mean he gives the allusion that he is MR COOL, but being to cool is bad. From my observation he only starts thinking and worrying when its too late. He trys to be too cool, to laid back, that’s his down fall.
There is pressure on Asafa Powell, this is a must win, championships, no matter who’s there.
Imagine all the thoughts that will be in his mind, in that final.
I think Asafa Powell won’t put his best race together in the final, and Mark Lewis Francis will, because what happened to him 4years ago.
I think he has issues, and is disinterested in stuff, maybe because he was so use to winning from such a young age.
But there you go MARK LEWIS FRANCIS will win providing he is healthy and stays injury free, pray to God.
