    • Shericka Jackson needs to do some serious work on hip strength. Her legs are hardly coming up. She will be more dangerous when she can get those legs up and out.

        Nope, her first 100 so awful she has to come full throttle in the second 100. I'll tell you what Id like her to get into the 21.6 range because then Thompson would feel like she has to go even faster because Mboma imo will be the person who pushes her over the next year over the longer distance.

          The tap dancing around her issue by the commentators really grinds my gears. I'm sure their employers have forbidden speaking about it, but c'mon man. She and Masilingi are not allowed to compete in the 400 for a specific reason.

          • Sometthing needs to be done!!
            No woman with higher than normal testosterone should be allowed to run in ANY all-women's event!
            She's a woman, but she has an unfair advantage over women with natural levels of testosterone!
            Same goes for Niyonsaba in the distances!

              That's already been trademarked by ETH.

                On Peacock, the commentator has talked about it several times.

                  Yes, tough to knock him off but Kerley's finish has been strong.

                    I believe she was running all out, but when age and more coaching she will be WR holder. They will probably stop her before she breaks 21.34. It's not going to look good for a DSD athlete to break a 30+ year old record, given her age.

                    • Bednarek gets a Eugene Wild Card, which immediately turns to ashes, because of NL's WC Gold.

                        Who's providing the commentary there? It's SRR on the NBC Sports stream.

                          Oh well, make the change now or deal with it next year.

                            Some Brit dude. They're all interchangeably decent.

                            • To me sandbagging would be a clear lead off the curve and then looking back a few times to adjust your pace so you don't look like you are blowing everyone out of the water. Mbomba didn't do that.

                                She's quite faster than the others in the final 100. Right now she can't sandbag that part and win.
