  • Brussels - W200 - Gevaert takes win on home soil

    Not a blisteringly fast time (22.75), but a commanding win nonetheless. Gevaert ran an amazing bend and had a HUGE lead with 80m to go. Torri Edwards (who had run the 100m just 25 minutes earlier) came back strong at the end but couldn't quite make up the ground.

      Did Edwards fall asleep in the blocks? Reaction time of 0.300 from someone consistently reacting in 0.130 is odd.

        do the field get paid off/"knobbled" not to beat kim in belgium ?

        a derisory winning time & the gals don't come anywhere near her & run hugely below their ability

        i get the feeling if kim had run 23.75, she'd still win, with 2nd in 23.81

        also seems promoter didn't ask felix to run ( probably coudn't pay her enough money to race & lose & thus plain didn't invite her ! )

          See other threads - Felix has had to go back to Uni.

            amazes me she coudn't pay a friend to take down the lecture notes & she coud catch up with her studies after berlin

            a few thousand dollars for winning is not to be sniffed at !

              They probably wanted her to run --- but not the 200m!

                They should have paid her good money to run against Sanya in the 400. I would have bet good horse money on that one1

                  Yeah, they should have. But evidently they didn't!

                    W 200 Gevaert 22.75

                    What is the problem?

                    Felix is qualified for 400 @ WAF on Sunday 23Sept vs. Richards.

                    IAAF will probably give wild card to her for 200 @ WAF on Saturday 22Sept vs Gevaert.

                    If Lauryn Williams run 100 @ WAF will she treat it as a "BIG MEET?"

                    These questions make the Women's sprints interesting unlike the Men's sprints where Gay & Wariner are not running.
                    none

                      The gun was quick all night and it hampered times. Look at the RTs for the men's hurdles.
                      Torri was caught completely off guard, if you watch the race only fletcher reacts, Torri I am not sure was at set yet when the starter shot the gun.

                        The crowd response to this victory was huge... I was flabbergasted to see in the programme that this was Gevaert's 4th win at Van Damme of the furlong... one of the oddest 'peaks' to have in consecutive seasons (or perhaps the fields have been weaker than one would expect at such a meet?)

                          see eldrick's post 9 lines above as a good explanation....
