    Huh?

    I don't blame the person who made this list for having SOME doubts, but Alysia Johnson should be top 3. Her results this year have been strange (poor performance indoors), but she has the 3rd fastest time (2:00.5), accomplished in a race with little competition.

    She burned out by the World Championships last season, after sweeping the NCAA Outdoors and USA Champs, so I think that is why she has been quiet this year. However, the field is very soft and I think she will be capable of hitting 1:58 . . . that should definitely be enough to make the team, and with Chanelle Price in the field, you know the pace is going to be honest.

      Gota remember that Johnson had foot pain after NCAA heats, had an MRI (or whatever) and it was determined she shouldn't run the final. She's not zackly 100% a this point, no matter what her previoius credentials, as impeccable as they might seem.

        This event is a yawner (from my perspective). American women seem to think 2 minutes is a great race...the best in the world don't.

          Clark (1.57,99) and Schmidt (1.58,75) would tend to disagree with your assessment of 2.00,00 being good... sorry, "great". Teter, though a bit aged, has a 1.57,97 PB. That makes three out of the first four on the form chart who have personal bests faster than your yawn line.

            yeah but they're not exactly in that sort of shape now. or are they? they ought to have been able to give an ageing mutola a closer run the other day surely?

                You:re both missing the point, and Kurt, you:ve changed your point from: "American women seem to think 2 minutes is a great race", to "Old PBs...and not competitive for the finals @ Beijing." These women don:t think 2.00 is a great race, as they have all run faster at some point in their careers.

                If you want to yawn during the W-800m, grab a beer.

                          Stunning result from Price. She didn't run her race, and paid for it.

                            And how old is Roesler? She just finished Grade 10 - is that right?

                              All the hype seemed to be on high-schooler Chanelle Price, but lo and behold the little N. Dakota 10th-grade gal (Roesler) gets a Q for the semis.
                              BTW, is her name pronounced like "wrestler"?
