    No VCB vs. Felix clash this time, but it will be interesting to see how she will respond to the second place and another strong performance in the relay.

    What is wrong with our sport when we have to watch Felix looking for her ear ring, LIVE! I mean, surely, one day athletes will be suited and booted and ready to go ON TIME?

      Felix still dips when her left foot plants. It is so clearly noticeable. I wonder when her team will get this misalignment fixed. She still won....

        I did not think that she would will, but would not have in the face of a 22.0. I agree that she is still asymmetric. I think that she said that she is running this race as a contractual obligation and then she is done. It sounds like they are going to start working (operating on???) whatever is wrong.

          I think that if they had switched lanes, Williams might have beaten Felix.

            It would have had as much affect as in the men's 400 -- lanes had nothing to do with this outcome, IMO.

              Allyson is such a class act that I think she doesn't want to come off looking like she is whining or making excuses.

              But even my blind grandmother can see that her form is off. She doesn't appear to be in any pain or distress, but it has to affect her performance.

                I definitely agree that her form looks completely off. That hitch in her stride is just alarming to me considering what a gorgeous, graceful, flowing stride she's known for. Hurting her performance? I dont know. She ran a hell of a leg on the 4x400 relay, and her time in the OG 200m was her PB, wasn't it? If not, it was her 2nd best time. It was a great time! So, sure, it could be affecting her performance. But she's still damn fast. The question, then, is how fast could she go with that hitch worked out? :shock:

                  It is all speculation--maybe one day she will let everyone know.

                    If she is injured, at least she is not using it as an excuse for losing in Beijing. Quite different from someone else who has an excuse for her disappointing loss.

                      there's a difference - non-grumbler lost to a 21.74

                      if anyone in the field had been offered that time beforehand, they wouda bitten your hand off - that had to have a much better than 50% chance of winning, whoever ran it - not much point grumbling that if she wasn't injured she'd have beaten that - highly doubtful

                      as for the grumbler, she lost to 49.62 - an eminently possible time for the grumbler if fit
