    Of course, it could happen. I just don't see how what Shericka and Novlene Williams did in Lausanne, where neither PR'ed, could be considered an "ominous sign." They were on the Jamaican team in Beijing and ran well, but the US ran better.

    They may be rich in talent, but the USA is still richer in that event and there's no reason to think that will change by 2012.
    Why not ? Nobody thought they would dominate the 100 and 200 either. I'm not saying it will happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if it does happen. Four years is a long time and I'm sure we don't even know some of the Olympic champions of 2012 today.

    You were right!

    Novlene ran 50.33 to win the 'B' race, while Shericka ran 50.47 to win the 'A' race:

    Looks to me to be like the old Z├╝rich men's 800s, where they have too many good people for one race, so there's no real A or B race. Rather than trying to parse them all, they go to a bit of a random draw situation, so the better people all can have good lanes.

    Sanya Richards is still being advertised on the main page of the meet, but is not on the start list anymore. Nicola Sanders, Novlene Williams and Mary Wineberg in the B race before the official start :shock:
