    Steiner is a good shot to get a medal. Jackson, i dont know. She has run some super fast times. I mayber havent paid much attention to her because of SAFP and ETH. We shall see. I hope Abby can maintain fitness levels and get stronger actually. She will need it to have a chance to win gold. As for the 4x4. She will be fine. The US should be super strong there too. Steiner, McLaughlin, Mu, and Mohammad as well as Diggs and Maybe Britton Wilson.

      The media in the western world are basically shit who know , and always have known, how to brainwash the great unwashed to support , take interest in and then become obsessed by talented or self promoting persons in the celebrity flimflam world, ably assisted by cynical PR exponents.Sporting world clearly included therein

        Hope she is cleaner than the first two. How often is Steiner tested as a college athlete?

            really man. That girl is clean. I would worry more about Jackson than her being dirty.

              You're about as far from a wokester as can be.

                She's tested more often than the pros who are only tested by USADA, not the NCAA.

                  But then again, what would happen if one or the other (if Mboma somehow manages to recover from her injuries) was allowed to run, beats Steiner or anyone else, and crushes Flo's WR and takes it very close to 21.00 or even cracks it? And is Seyni running the 200?

                    Why are some people so obsessed with what wokesters might say about a hypothetical situation?

                    Just enjoy what Steiner just accomplished.

                      Some of the same are spending way too much time worrying about what an athlete that didn't make a final this week has to say.

                        Shericka Jackson has a better shot at a medal than Steiner imo.

                          A far better chance imo. Shericka Jackson is an incredibly consistent championship performer (She has consistently medalled in world and Olympic championships since 2015 with the only exception in 2017. And yes, she's the Jamaican bronze queen 2.0 but she has a huge chance to change that this season if shelly and Elaine do not run at their absolute best in the 100m and she's now the firm favourite for the 200m.

                            I'll be crossing my fingers and hoping Steiner can hold her superb form for the next three weeks. Looks like all those 4*400m relays really helped her, because I couldn't help but notice how she finished incredibly strong even against the pros at the trials.

                              Absolutely not meant to be harsh here, but do you know that for a fact? It seems to me there is no transparency with respect to what the NCAA does.

                                Yes, I know it for a fact because elite college athletes like Steiner are tested by USADA as often as the pros IN ADDITION TO NCAA testing.
