Starts Lists and Predictions for the Sprint Competitions

Here are the Men’s and Women’s start lists for the World Championship Sprint competitions. The field is huge, with 136 Men and 115 Women competing.

There are 8 North Americans competing in the Men’s Sprint: Tim Burke (bib 7), JP Le Guellec (bib 18), Scott Perras (bib 76), Lowell Bailey (bib 78), Scott Gow (bib 96), Leif Nordgren (bib 104), Russell Currier (bib 113) and Nathan Smith (bib 134).

The 8 North American Women competing are Susan Dunklee (bib 14), Rosanna Crawford (bib 16), Annalies Cook (bib 57), Zina Kocher (bib 58), Megan Heinicke (bib 79), Sara Studebaker (bib 82), Audrey Vaillancourt (bib 101) and Hanah Dreissigacker (bib 112).

Who am I tipping to win these competitions? For the Men, I am looking for Dmitry Malyshko to use his struggles in the Mixed Relay as inspiration for a victory in the Sprint. For the Women, I am counting on Darya Domracheva to get her season back on a roll with a Sprint win.

Who are you putting your money on in the Sprint?
