    Was a very strong performance form her, as an earlier poster intimated (see 110 hedgeNYC), her form -arm motion, stride and execution were textbook and powerful. She certainly has been doing extra work leading in the season.

    The self acclaimed sprint technician in me says she will be one to beat at Berlin, but the track gambler in me says she will not make the podium!!

    Let me guess why, you don't believe an American is gonna make the podium, this ain't Beijing, a new year.
    How do I try to address your simplistic analysis of my opinion, without pointing you to one of many posts advertising Lauryn as one of my most favourite sprinters and that she will be my bet for championship medals of course right up there with VCB.

    However, with that said, Its still a possibilty (moderate probability) that one ( US) might not, regardlessof the geographical location of the track and the calender date.

    Listen man..you have f'ed up many a good threads by altering the topic because of your failure to comprehend. Lets keep the subject fixed on this young lady's beautiful performance and not digress. William seems to be really fond of her and would really want it that way.
    Did you or did you not see where I stated let me guess why? You do know what I guess is don't you? So obviously it's not based upon on what I know.

    Now since you have made it clear in this THREAD about Lauryn, carry on. Altering a thread, but yet you made mention about other threads :shock: :roll: :roll: I stayed on topic, this thread is about who again? You call keeping the thread fixed on Jeter and her beautiful performance, but yet you couldn't wait to state how she won't be on the podium, and you said disgressing, right...WOW[/quote:b8c8j29o]

    UHHHH!!!!??? Anyway!![/quote:b8c8j29o]

      Veronica don't need to take part in 100m trials to qualify for Berlin. She is already a qualify by default (Defending Champion).

        You know what...after coming home and watching the reply of this race...I'm looking at her getting into the blocks and she look like a freaking man. She look more muscular than some of those guys running the 100m. Her shoulders are broad, and muscular. She must been eating a lot of protein during the off season and now..I really hope so. Track and field is so excited now, no need for some bad sh!t again.

        PS. Stil,l I'll bet my car that she is not winning gold in Berlin. Lot more races to go.

            I don't think she eases up. I think she tightened up at the line and ran out of steam...something I'm not used to seeing from her. I don't think it means anything negative for her season...just a tough race.

              I saw that too, maybe she figure she got it won. Anyways, i'm just happy Fraser ran and didn't look bad. After missing so much competition, that wasn't a bad run today, all of those ladies in the race ran more 100m than her and she still represent well. My trifecta is looking good for Berlin. Do you know what is her schedule leading up to Berlin?

                Two on the left are from '08...the one on the right is from last weekend. I know she's gotten bigger...not just from pics but because I've stood next to her multiple times since '07.

                I'm not into the debate of why she is bigger/more defined because thanks not my place but I think she definitely has changed. I think the biggest change is in her back muscles.

                  You can see the strength benefits from that increased size, her arm action is much cleaner and more effective, her arms crossed her body a bit in 2007/08, the John Smith technical que of 'beating the drum' really works for her.

                  You can see how Smith tidied up Miller's technique in the same way in 1999 when she joined HSI - shoulders down, no wasted movement.

                  It was a great run, I think she is still leaning back a little, if she can get her chest a little further forward, she could get even faster.

                  One thing I did notice in NYC was that she moved in her lane away from VCB, some might see that as a psychological thing regarding VCB, who i think is mentally one of the toughest females sprinters.

                      She does not look 'bigger' to me in the last picture, just more well defined. Kelly White looked 'big' to me. The well-defined look has a 'leanness' to it.

                        I don't know if it was so much Kerron letting up as much as it was Jeter finishing like she did, which she truly did.

                          "Many are still soooo caught up in the fixation of the Olympics that you fail to logically see the season for what it is"

                          erm...athletics IS the Olympics, that is THE meet, the one every athlete want's to win, what they train for. And 2008 WAS the Olympics, it wasnt about the Pre of the GP circuit, it was all about Beijing. Jamaica blew away the opposition there. Regardless of what happened during the season, they DOMINATED the sprints in Beijing, period.

                          Athletics is about competition, isn't it? It's about rivalry, beating your competitors, getting medals for your country.....I'm darn sure the US team management were pissed with how Jamaica dominated, and they will ofcourse want to be back on top. So, no, the US sprinters don't NEED to prove anything, but they will WANT to.

                            Well, we do not sit down and wait for four years just because there is not another Olympics until London '08. The OGs are the most important competition -- they are NOT the only competition.

                            Is it me, or is a subset of the JAM crowd predicating everything on the finish of a couple of races last August and that none of the relatively mediocre results this spring seems to sink in. While Bolt has not lost yet, virtually everyone else has, many multiple times, often to athletes those 'faithful' are sure will not be able to repeat their success come the next championship (and if they do, I suppose that we will be told "well, it is not the OGs, that is what matters").

                              Some of the comments in this thread are certainly implying something about Jeter, simply based upon her appearance.

                              Obviously looks are decieving.

                                Watch the replay of the last 10m. You can see her change her stride pattern to coast across the line and and as she was about to cross the line I think she noticed Jeter.
