    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.

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

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

    That's already been trademarked by ETH.

    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!

    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.

    I don't mind it as it is branding for her and a women's discus thrower needs all the recognition help she can get.

    At the press conference he addressed what he would need to do to run the 800 but didn't say he was going to do it.

    There's lots of smoke around the DSD issue, but Mboma sure looks 100% female.
