                  **she wants to give 100% to the 100
                  **still nursing injuries from last year due to the double

                  She is just upset she didn't win yesterday. Why overnight she decide not to run 200m at trials.

                  The bad news for her is that she is not going to win in Berlin. She keeps complaining, she is a professional. You don't listen to crowds, when your on your marks..you main objective is to listen for the GUN. That is exactly what SAF said...she just was listening for the gun!!

                  I watch Kerron Stewart doing the same in the BERLIN Golden League a couple weeks ago. Laverne-Jones from SVI (I think) got out to a rocket start and Kerron had to run her down (Laverne-Jones) evetually faded to six place, but this is just an example of a pattern Kerron Stewart has.

                  Laverne-Jones is no SAF. Kerron needs to concentrate and focus on her race when she is in the blocks and stop worrying about what's going on with everything else. Once you in the blocks and on your marks...listen for gun, that is one of the fundamentals in track and field.

                  Last year trials, she catch Fraser and I'm sure Fraser is working on her speed endurance in her training. She is no slow pow either, so once she got that head start, she better be there with her...because that's 10.78 speed she running down.

                  • Not because an athlete registers for an event means they will actually run it. Don't make assumptions. We just have to take her word for it and be satisfied.

                      Ramon Mckenzie was funny with the mask...did he realize the could've gotten that third spot!! He was right their with Anderson.

                        How do you know that she decided overnight she wasn't going to run the 200m?

                        I think she has a better chance to win now that she is not doubling and all her major competitors seem to be doubling except Jeter (who has a cramp) and Williams (who I think she will outrun anyways)

                        • I guess we take her word for. This is big news and the commentators would've mention it or hint etc.

                          She showed up. Again I guess i'll take her word for it.

                          SAF didn't look bad in that race. For a minute I thought she was going to get the lead from VCB. She could spring a surprise, when we least expect her to make any noise in the 200m at Berlin.

                            Unless I am reading the schedule incorrectly, all of the 100m races for women will be over before the first round of the 200m. The IAAF web site lists the 100m Final for the afternoon session on Aug 17, with the first round of the 200m in the morning session on the 19th.

                            So if the 100m is all over before the 200m, does Stewart really have an advantage over anyone in the 100m? I'd better see that argument for someone doing the 200m only versus to competition doing both.

                            I accept what she has said about the pain and injury doubling caused in and post Beijing but I also think that Jamaica just lost one of its better chances for a medal in the 200m in Berlin.

                            • Yea, I think it is pretty stupid for Kerron to not double if the first round of the 200 isn't until after the final of the 100. Because she could literally just not even train at all for the 200, and ONLY train for the 100 (since she wants the 100 gold so badly, and also doesn't want to overtrain or risk injury or whatever) and then it literally hos no effect whatsoever on her 100m training or racing in Berlin. Cuz the 200 is just something she would be doing for shits and giggles AFTERWARDS. If she gets injured AFTERWARDS it isn't going to have any effect on the 100, that's already OVER WITH.

                              Sigh... it doesn't sound like she thought this through very carefully. What a shame.

                                You also have to take into consideration the training that goes into preparing to double. Yeah am sure she would have gotten a medal but I doubt she would have gotten any individual gold medals. Right now I think SAF would have gotten the better of her in the 100 and VCB and Allyson would have gotten her in the 200. Her sole focus for the season being the 100 m will work to her advantage.
