    They are men in the biological sense but raised as women. It sucks but sports isnt about feelings thats what soap operas and telenovelas are for. Alot of these "women" is left untouched likely had the ability to impregnate other women and mifht still be able to. Mboma made a joke of rhe worlds best women in like her 3rd or 4,th 200 meter eace ever. We just gotta keep it all rhe way real and stop with the mushy super liberal babble. If Mboma wants to use a womans bathroom she should be entitled but sports is about buology that's y they have a biological passport

    I read that one of Ayana's strides was found to be unusually longer than with the other leg. Not proportional at all, even though it wasn't obvious in real time. They thought that might have contributed to her knee issues. During her comeback attempt after surgery they were trying to fix that aspect. Maybe it didn't work. The related information stopped completely.

    Ayana had a baby about a year ago. She posts lots of proud related photos on her Facebook. Most of them quite formal. She has logically gained quite a bit of weight.

    In August she did post one photo of herself on the track. The comment box blew up, assuming it was a comeback and encouraging her to do so. But the caption was vague and it wasn't even clear that it was a new photo. She looked thinner than any of the photos before and after.

    Nothing subsequent has been related to a comeback.

    It’s been an amazing 2 months of training with my new squad @phoenixtcaz. Slowly feeling like my old self. God is so good. More to come 🙌🏾"

    Someone who probably would have been better off going to college and run there.

    Alexa Efraimson. At least the 2015 version.

    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.

    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.

    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...
