    If she doesn't overdo the SF, the answer is Yes!

        It's hard to have three significant PR drops in a row, especially in time trial mode. But we will see.

        By the way a great headline opportunity was missed - "Mu, then who?"
        There are no strings on me

          The biggest issue is no competition not talent. She does seem to be motivated even when running alone but if not this weekend it's coming soon. She does need to shed college kids as they will hold her back.

            I think she’ll get a good push for about 250-300 from Williams, McDonald, & Robert’s. They’ll be close enough to make her need to run. A slight improvement by Williams could have her approach sub 50....not that unlikely 🤷🏾‍♂️

              Except that her name is pronounced 'Mo', and that would make for an unfortunate rhyme . . .

                How do the top 3 ranked athletes on the year get placed in the same, 3 heat semifinal?? Where only the top two auto qualify?? 🤷🏾‍♂️

                Mu, Stacy Ann Williams & Kaelin Roberts all in the first heat. 🤦🏽‍♂️🙄

                How are they seeding these heats? This can’t be the best way...

                  Roberts didn't win her quarterfinal.

                  There were six quarterfinal winners between the two first round meets, so they had to randomly drop those six into the three semis in Eugene. The same goes for the six second-place finishers from the quarterfinals, and so on.

                    If she's 3rd fastest overall today she'll qualify for the final.

                      Good for Mu for running so easy over the last 50.

                        Mu looked very relaxed at 51.04

                              She is (as of yesterday) 19 years old. Let's let her do what SHE wants before we bury her in OUR expectations.
