    Semi 3: Rogers, Almanza, Hodgkinson, Arafi
    Yes that looks like two very hard sfs and the Mu/Alemu one. Same US-UK pairings as today so lets hope Hodgkinson just let Rogers past today.

    Goule the most impressive, but she’s never really achieved anything in finals
    She is likely to be among those who will try to menace Mu, maybe take her out of her rhythm, before Mu sets up to lower the boom. I hope she doesn't have a 2019 NBIN flashback when she makes her move.

    That wasn't much of a problem in 2017. She dared to go with Semenya and Niyonsaba almost every step of the way, and was rewarded twice; first with the AR, then 3rd at the World Champs. She needs to picture in her head what it was like to run near the front and stay there, then break away from those who would try to menace her before she made the break.

    Yes. Outside of the hard core, she'll soon be forgotten, instead of being a Gold medalist forever.

She is not going to be able to wait until the homestretch in the semis, because she'll find herself too far back to pick them off to make the final. Her kick is nowhere near the mad-dash prowess that Raevyn hss shown us twice. She needs to run with the way she did in 2017 to make the final and/or win a medal.
    Dont think it is a habit more so than it happened here and at USAs. Most of her career, most notably in 2019 when she wasnt running against Semenya and Niyonsaba, she was a front runner

    Don't start!

    Wilson left that waaaaay too late.

    I didn't like seeing Mu running in a slow race, especially given her height and long stride but she straight jogged that heat, I'm pretty sure I've been more tired after an easy 30 minute jog around the neighborhood

    What happened to Bishop?
