We already knew about Usain Bolt, and today we found out which other big-name runners are in the pool of participants at Franklin Field this weekend. I've posted some of the biggest names below.

200 meters in 19.20 seconds. Seriously. And people said Michael Johnson's 19.32 would never be broken. But Usain Bolt clocked 19.30 last year, and now he's taken 1/10th of a second off his own world record. If you didn't see it live, here's the video: Read more
