I can't wait!
I do believe that Usain is playing games, and deliberately "creating a sense of theatre".
I'm certain, that come the finals, he will win - handily!
My favourite events are the middle and long distance races.
BTW, the 100m race is - for me - like a one page novel compared to the full-blown epic novel that is, for example, the 1500m with all its plots and sub-plots.
