                  Mclaughlin said on instagram that this will be her only post-worlds race this season. Is she not running Monaco anymore?

                      Interesting choice for Sydney.

                      Not a super high profile meet. No competition. Nothing else to prove this year for the 400h… why not go for the open 400 like Bobby said? I think 50.68 as crazy as it is, was not the target and they have unfinished business. I think they want to put this event so far out of reach before turning attention to the 400 flat. Wouldn’t be surprised if we see a low 50 or even a sub 50.

                        Have you been following this season?

                        51.61 with messed up hurdles at a "low key" ATL meet
                        51.41 World Record at USAs
                        50.68 World Record at World Championships

                        Yes there were people in the other lanes, but thoes were all basically 3 solo runs. Currently, at this point, Bol, Muhammad, Wilson, Little etc. are not "competition" for her.

                          If Syd can run the hurdles in sub-50, she is fast/strong enough to take down the 400-flat record. So do that first and then return to the hurdles.
                          I, for one, think she can break the 400 record. I am extremely skeptical she can break 50 in the hurdles.

                            Some of y'all esp the Americans are 'high key' underrating Marita Koch's world record. That woman regardless of her doping is by FAR the most complete female sprinter of all time. She went through 300m in her record race in 34.14 seconds. Only miller uibo has come 'close' to that......in a 300m race. The next fastest time ran after her record run in 1985 is 48.14 in 2019 which is still over half a second slower. Imo, she would have to turn into another version of the current Shericka Jackson while still retaining her 400m strength to have a solid chance at that record. Running a 47.91 split (while incredibly impressive) just doesn't cut it for me when Allyson, jarmila, and the 1980s Soviet women have split faster and are still wayyy adrift of 47.6

                              There's a couple of reasons athletes choose to compete at this meeting:

                              a) It's a Gold meeting and year-by-year it's ranked by WA in the Top 15 of all the one-day meetings (including Diamond Leagues).
                              b) From all the reports I've heard/read the athletes get treated like royalty by the meeting organisers. It's certainly true that they all look happy to be there and all the winners hang around and have fun during the winners' ceremony at the end of the meeting.
