En ouverture, les deux équipes américaines du 4x400m étaient en force pour se tester une dernière fois avant les Jeux Olympiques, en piste au Stade Louis II.Les hommes, avec Justin GATLIN et Tyson GAY  notamment, se sont octroyés la MPM en 37.61 et lancé un avertissement aux Jamaïcains. Les dames, en revanche, ont loupé leur course, la faute à un dernier relais raté entre Tarmoh et Jeter, incapables de se passer le témoin...

L'Américain LaShawn Merritt, a stoppé son 400 m en raison d'une "crampe à l'ischio-jambier". Les relais américain du 4x100 m messieurs et dames ont connu des fortunes diverses.

Aries Merritt peut se réjouir. Le champion du monde en salle, Aries Merritt, une semaine après avoir égalé sous la pluie sa MPM au meeting de Crystal Palace (12"93 réalisés début juillet aux sélections américaines), l'Américain a remis le couvert dans de bien meilleures conditions climatiques.

le dernier grand rendez-vous avant les Jeux. Mais non loin du célèbre casino, les fortunes furent diverses. A ce petit jeu, Aries Merritt peut se réjouir. Le champion du monde en salle est bien le plus régulier des hurdleurs. Une semaine après avoir égalé sous la pluie sa MPM au meeting de Crystal Palace (12"93 réalisés début juillet aux sélections américaines), l'Américain a remis le couvert dans de bien meilleures conditions climatiques.

Le champion du monde Jason Richardson (13"07) émarge un degré en-dessous. La lutte face au Chinois Liu Xiang promet en tout cas beaucoup pour les Jeux, sans oublier la possible résurgence du Cubain Dayron Robles, qui avait annulé sa venue à Monaco. Le Russe Sergey Shubenkov (13"09, record de Russie égalé) a aussi marqué des points. Le Français Garfield Darien lui, apparaît un peu loin pour lutter pour le podium londonien (13"27), et Dimitri Bascou encore plus (13"54).

Zéro pointé pour la Tsarine

ART14HERCUL--6-.jpg

Au contraire d'Aries Merritt, Isinbayeva a elle connu une énorme désillusion. La Tsarine de la perche avait décidé de marquer de son empreinte la 9e étape de la Ligue de diamant avec, pour commencer, une entrée à 4,70 m. Mais trois échecs à cette hauteur sont venus fermer le visage de la Russe, qui partira donc à Londres sans certitude pour devenir, peut-être, la première athlète femme à obtenir un 3e titre olympique consécutif. "J'étais prête pour sauter, mais tout est allé différemment de ce qui était prévu. Je suis physiquement et mentalement prête pour les Jeux, mais bien sûr, en tant qu'être humain je m'inquiète comme n'importe quel compétiteur", a-t-elle avoué. Le concours a été remporté par l'Allemande Silke Spiegelburg avec au passage la MPM avec 4,82 m. La Française Vanessa Boslak n'a pas non plus connu la réussite, bloquée à 4,45 m après trois échecs à 4,54 m.

ART14Herc--2-.jpg

L'Américain Wallace Spearmon a lui aussi connu une déception, avec sa 3e place seulement sur le 200 m (20"09, vent nul). De quoi réjouir à distance le Français Christophe Lemaitre, qui bataillera avec Spearmon derrière les intouchables Jamaïcains Yohan Blake et Usain Bolt. La peur de la blessure: c'est ce qu'à entrevu l'Américain LaShawn Merritt, qui a stoppé son 400 m en raison d'une "crampe à l'ischio-jambier".

Les relais américain du 4x100 m messieurs et dames ont connu des fortunes diverses. Les hommes, avec Gatlin et Gay notamment, se sont octroyés la MPM en 37.61 et lancé un avertissement aux Jamaïcains. Les dames, en revanche, ont loupé leur course, la faute à un dernier relais raté entre Tarmoh et Jeter, incapables de se passer le témoin...

ART14Herc--6-.jpg

Sur 100 m, la Nigériane Blessing Okagbare a confirmé qu'il faudrait compter avec elle pour un podium à Londres, avec une nouvelle victoire sur la distance et un record personnel (10"96, vent nul). En clôture, les Kényans ont offert un magnifique 3000 m steeple, avec la victoire du jeune Conselus Kipruto (17 ans) au finish, devant Paul Koech (8'03"9 contre 8:03.90), assez loin cependant du record du monde espéré. A noter également, le chrono du Kényan Asbel Kiprop, champion olympique et du monde du 1500 m, auteur de la MPM en 3'28"88. Plus que dans la tête, lui avait déjà Londres dans les jambes.

His election to the IOC in 2006 came after numerous positions within Malaysian and Southeast Asian sporting organisations; including the Presidency of the Malaysian Olympic Council, the Vice-Presidency of the Commonwealth Games Federation and the organising committee for the 1998 Commonwealth Games. The Prince played squash for Malaysia in the 1970s.

Prince Albert II (Monaco)
