  • Amazing run from Benjamin, showing he hasnt lost a step.

    Keep an eye out for McMaster and his PB of 47.50. Beats his previous best of 47.54 which he ran behind Samba's 46.98 back in 2018. McMaster could upset for a medal if one of the big 3 are not careful. I could see him sub 47 this year. McMaster is also younger than Samba and Warholm.

      It's not absolutely solid. National Champ Jye Edwards is the only certainty right now. But he'd be unlucky not to be chosen, despite being the only one of our four (so far) qualified athletes to miss our Olympic trial.

      Also may depend on McSweyn and his choice of event for Tokyo.

      • Well well, Felix is in it! 22.26 is a very good time with just +2.1 wind

        Gabby Thomas look like the favorite to win at trials though. Slightly windy 22.12 (would have been a PB) and consistently winning almost all of her races.

        • Results page says the Women's 200 was windy (2.1)!
          Only wind aided sprint of the day!

            It was slightly windy at 2.1 m/s, but a marginally windy 22.26 is good! That tells me that Felix could make the 200 team if she maintains her fitness.

            • Her indoor form did suggwta 22.3 outdoors, so a 22.26w is about right.
              Thomas looked great in the last 20m where she ran away from the others. Looks to be favourite for the NCs at present. Prandini had run a 100m earlier, so taking that I to account, her 4/100ths behind Felix here suggest there could be a blanket finish behind Thomas at the NCs!

              • Good run by Irby too ... wonder if she's still got designs on the 400 with her 49-high talent or if it's all about the 200 right now.

                  Using this site: https://jmureika.lmu.build/track/wind/index.html

                  It's 10.69, and her season opener in Florida gets 10.81. She's not peaking in her 2nd race of the year, and she's dropped a nice chunk in one race. She'll likely be the first woman under 10.60 without a questionable wind, and do it this year. 10.57 is my projection.

                  • Bednerek almost had it. Messy off the curve and tightened up, started flaring the last 20m.

                    • x,=6 A for Benjamin, right? Fastest time in history before June!

                        This is assuming Richardson only goes for the 100m. She already has a 22.11 this spring and the schedule makes a 100/200 double very realistic.

                          Good Point. Richardson will almost certainly go for the double since the 200 is after her main event.

                            So do you see the possibility of her choking/underperforming & not being ready to run her best OR the others running in the 10.6’s? Since that looks like what it will take to beat Sha’Carri...

                              And that 22.11 was the second race of the year. Now today she has 3. She isn't even out of her pyjamas yet. She looks on about a 10.60 trajectory and in that case
                              21.80 would be a bad day.

                                Forgetting about injury, all it would take would be one false start.
