    More than Osaka? Serena? Even Gauff? Not a chance in hell.

    As for Richardson and Steiner I was talking strictly the shoe deals.

    That said I'd be surprised if she making more than Richardson(higher profile events, higher profile athlete, more than double the social media numbers). That may well change when their current respective contracts expire

    Edit: I also think Steiner's contract with Puma probably compares quite favorably to McLaughlin's four year old NB deal.

    But, none of us will really ever know, so were all just speculating

    I agree, I think many are both underrating the 400m WR, while also overestimating how McLaughlin's hurdle/relay performances translate to the open event.

    As noted, Felix has run some of the fastest splits ever, but never replicated that in the open 400. SRR has run amazing 400s but never really ran what she "should" have run on relay splits.

    Koch didnt run 47.9, 47.8 or even 47.7, she ran 47.60

    Were saying McLaughlin (or anyone) should be easily at 47.5 in the open flat? She ran 47.91 on a relay split. Very similar to when many said Athing Mu's 48.32 relay split showed she could challege for 400m gold, forgetting that Miller-Uibo ran 48.36...from the blocks. For the most part, take a 400m runner, put them on the relay and they should run to form. But IMO, when your pushing the boundaries with top athletes and performances, times dont exactly translate across events as nicely as we might expect.

    Lets see McLaughlin run and open 400m and break the American record first before we start handing out the World record (which is over a full second faster)

    I have to agree with you on that one.

    No one found it "a little strange" on this forum then.
    Camacho Quinn and Gardiner competed in 8 different meets outdoors before Tokyo, including races in Europe. McLaughlin ran in 4 meets and stayed in the US so not really comparable.

    I do find it strange she would travel all this way just for one meeting, and only have one meeting post Worlds when they were crazy early in the calendar.

    Assuming she starts, I wonder what deal has been struck with the organisers. unacceptable innuendo removed...
    These things do happen.

    May be she doesn't go to these lucrative meetings to preserve her career.
    Also her coach's decision, I can imagine.
    Sad for her fans all over the world, but we could understand this strategy.

    So you're not a fan of track and field. Why are the other 16 events for males and females so uninteresting to you. Or do you also have problems with track events lasting more than a couple of minutes.??A fan who does not like mr Crouser.. that's serious😄
