    The women's 800 is a much better event without Semenya...a farce when S was running. The DSDs have no business in the women's races.

      Michael Carter? 60 yr old who played football after his shot put career? I am pretty much sure he is retired.
      His daughter has not retired yet.

        The injured: Christian Taylor, Thomas Rohler, Donovan Brazier Being a New Yorker I've missed Paul Dedewo. He ran some in '19 but i've never seen anything about his retirement or injury or whatever.

          He ran the 400m twice this year in the UK back in May, only hitting times of 48.27 and 48.01. I know for the past 2ish years, including this summer, he has been focusing on photography

              Thanks for the update. Sounds like he's moving on with life.

                Absolutely - by a mile.
                Then Coleman and Brazier.

                People who were out/off at Tokyo - Kendricks and LaVillenie, Lyles and Norman, Ajee Wilson, Coburn, Morris, Price, KJT . . .

                  You do realise how ignorant you sound? Regardless of whether you believe there should be restrictions, you can still write it sensitively. These are women with DSD.

                    It isn't their fault but they don't belong in women's sports.

                    I will say this...it is good that Niyonsaba tries to run as fast as possible every time...something Semenya hardly ever did...

                      A point many seem to miss. They are indeed women. They just need to run against similarly advantaged women.

                        Thanks NotDutra5. I did not know Brazier was injured. Hope he is back to old form next year to compete for gold in Eugene. Also, I hope C.Taylor will be back and Will Claye will be all the way back to his old form at Eugene. Can't also wait to see how Knighton develops.

                            I echo Almaz Ayana. I'm so confused by how her career has gone post-2016.

                              I've read she had recurrent tibial periostits and operations on her two knees in 2018...

                                Rohler's a good shout. I almost forgot about him, such has been his up & down championship form since Rio.

                                It would have bene nice to see Schippers in good form, to add further spice to the w200m.

                                The big one for me though, was in-form KJT. She's had such bad luck, and yet it was obvious from the first event she had managed to fight back into some sort of shape. But that blasted injury.
