      As fast as she is, I HAVE to think a more conventional arm carriage is faster.
      But . . . she has tremendous turnover and giving her a 'better' form might mess with that.

          It comes straight from the timing company and is a “flash time” that is triggered by movement near an eyebeam. Sometimes pretty wonky.

            Ofili looked way better . . . and ran slower . . .
            Her arm action is one of the worst I've seen in a long time, but her turnover etc seem to make up for it

              Here's a GREAT look at just how much her upper body technique has changed. The 2019 SEC 200, where she made up a massive amount of ground on Shacarri Richardson on the straight, just missing catching her at the line(22.57-22.59). The head-on view that starts at 1:12 shows that immaculate natural arm action. She may be faster now, but that's likely due to being three years older and further along the development curve, and doesnt mean she wouldn't be even faster with her natural arm mechanics, which were far more efficient and didnt torque her upper body side to side.

                Back to important stuff .... Anna Hall has improved her legal LJ PR to 6.42 and has a couple jumps left. Jasmine Moore leading (duh) at 6.73.

                  I remember reading about a coach of Scottish professional sprinters - maybe in the 60s and 70s. He had his sprinters do a lot of work on the (boxing) speed bag.
                  His theory was that the faster they could move their arms, the faster their legs would move to keep up. Something like that.
                  Maybe that's how it works in Abby's case - shorter swings, but higher frequency.

                    That would be Jim Bradley who coached the guy who coached Alan Wells. If anybody is interestested, here's a longish article on Bradley.

                        Pretty impressive run by 2 frosh in the 800 heats: Sam Whitmarsh (Texas A +M) 1:46.20 and Jacob Lamb (Alabama) 2nd in 1:46.57. These are big PR's. We shall soon see how will they do in the final vs Brandon Miller.
