        I can't believe no one has mentioned the current World Champion at 100 Meters...Torri Edwards!

          "I can't believe no one has mentioned the current World Champion at 100 Meters...Torri Edwards!"

          Good point, she seems to be overlooked whatever she does. If she knocks another tenth or 0.15 off her time in a Paris final she could well pull off a Devers in a blanket finish with Jones and a few others.

            Allyson is my girl we talk all the time, and I think she'll do good things next year. Of course Marion Jones is the girl that will dominate the whole of next year. Good luck to everyone

              Torri Edwards!!! Not only the fastest start, but continually improves on finish each year since beginning at USC. Never has taken a step back!

                    Angela Williams will be in the mix with all the other girls, but won't do anything exceptional.

                        Maybe me, depending how the trip to Denmark goes.

                              For those of you who don't remember the '50s:

                                "Won't be Felix; I doubt she'll do much in any event next year but she's more of a 200 runner anyway."

                                Maybe some coaches could shed a bit of light on something I have observed over the years: It seems to take a few years before athletes who are new to the international scene develop the strength to carry them through a season as long as the one Felix attempted this year. Evelyn Ashford in 1977-79 illustrates the point well. In '77, she was stunning at the US championships with an American record 22.62, but by the World Cup she could only manage something around 23.4 as I remember. The following year she held her form better and longer and improved her world ranking as a result. By 79, she ran 11.07AR in May, 10.97 at nationals, and had a splendid European campaign winning all the biggies right around 11 seconds before clobbering WR holder Marlies Gohr in 11.06 in Montreal into a headwind. (biggest live thrill for me at a track meet to this day).

                                I expect Felix will hold her form better next year. Thoughts?
