    Another score for Sanders over Williams in the head-to-head stakes. But now the battle for the No.2/No.3/No.4 spots looks to be between Felix, Sanders and Ohuruogu. I don't see how Novlene can rank any higher than fifth now.

      I wonder if Isi watched the race. She must have been thinking, there goes $500,000.

          If she has an IQ above that of a hamster, can't imagine she would have expected any other outcome.

            She'd already won $500,000 when Feofanova went out at 4.82.

              With new WL times on Friday night and Sunday afternoon, maybe Sanya's ability to handle rounds is improving.

                I'm sure that's what people thought in Indy too. With running Friday it did make today a little more interesting in light of her issues this season.

                  Or maybe she was thinking that Richards has only had 44 hours of rest since her Brussells win and that should affect her more than it does the three Osaka medalists and perhaps this will lead to a repeat of the scene in Indianapolis.

                    Good point. However I believe it has been the 3rd or 4th round where the health effect is the issue. I would imagine a few high test simulations prior to Beijing.

                      What I don't understand is that in Indy she was able run within 0.1s of Felix in the 200 final when it was her 6th race (3-400's & 3-200's) in 3 days, but she was almost a full second behind her in Osaka when it was her 4th race in 3 days.

                        She said in the interview afterwards that she wants to run 48.xx something in Stuttgart, so watch out.

                          This difference is exacerbated by Felix running significantly faster in Osaka than in Indy (and significantly faster than her previous PR). Richards just doesn't seem ready to go under 22 right now.

                            She may well do that and finish second if Felix decides to run. Keep in mind Felix is not qualified for the 200, but is for the 400.

                              I'm really curious to know what Felix will do, the 200 will be on Saturday while the 400 will be on Sunday, so she might compete in both races if she gets (wants) the wild card for the 200. The w400 could be the highlight of the weekend if both are still in good shape.
