    Johnson ran a big PR by almost 0.2; her old PR dated from 2017. Previewed her recent comeback indoors; she's now a real contender for making the WC team in such a highly competitive event.

      After leading off the broadcast with Sandi Morris, what happened to the women's PV?

        Was Johnson DQ'd??
        Jasmine tweeted that there was an 0.83 reaction time---I assume for Johnson, but JCQ didn't indicate who did it---and she was expecting a false start/recall!
        An 0.83 would definitely be DQ territory!

          They messed up an earlier start in one of the men's 100 heats where Gimili left the blocks a full second AFTER everyone else and another guy was also left a little behind. Then you saw him and the other guy gesturing that the start was bogus. In the men's hurdles another guy broke really fast before anyone else moved and was dq'd.

          I think they must've had issues with the starting blocks.
          I'm the best poster. Just ask me.

            and where does the money for that come from? (athletes are basically competing gratis already)

              Any replay's of that 100mH race? I feel like everyone from lane 5-8 didnt even react to the gun.

                  A very quick gun, would love to know the reaction time for Williams (lane 4 next to JCQ).

                      I know I have basically zero concrete evidence, but I feel lanes 5-6-7 all had broken speakers or something. Is it a coincidence they all just sat there without moving? Note after the race JCQ seemed to be signaling she didnt hear anything at the start.

                        shouldn't the money come from ESPN? They chose to televise these events so shouldn't they be responsible for doing a half way decent job? Doubt they have any financial difficulties right now!

                          Although the results posted so far do not show reaction times, JCQ was clearly referring to her own reaction (i.e delayed). DQ territory is less than 0.10.

                            ESPN basically rents the meet the airtime. They just see it as content.

                              Let's Run managed to paste all of the results on their site:
                              https://www.letsrun.com/news/2022/05...-track-league/

                              Nice 11.08 w100 by former prep sensation Tamari Davis in 4th ... I think that's a PR for her. Maybe on her way to fulfilling potential.

                                Watching the race it seemed Williams false-started
