    How well do you expect Tyson to run?

    Asafa looks like his old self today so the race should be a great matchup. It has been 3 years since both Asafa and Tyson have raced over 100m on the European circuit.

    It should be a great race. Slight edge to Tyson based on his early season form
    Stop being such a tease. :wink:

    is there any advantages for the people running the meets, not to let the fans know who is in the meet? (i cant think of any).
    I strongly suspect that the organizers aren't 100% sure until very close to the day.

    i hate it when there is a big meet coming up a few days away, and they dont even let you know who is competing other than a few marquee matchups.

    i like to know the fields as soon as possible, is there any advantages for the people running the meets, not to let the fans know who is in the meet? (i cant think of any).

    Good point. In the '07 Stockholm race she also demonstrated a greater emphasis on the final curve (staying with Richards) than she typically does in this event.

    She wasn't racing Sanya in that race however, This is a different ballgame. She won't be able to go out at a slower rate to run a 49.0, because she simply cannot make up that much ground in the final straight like that. She will have run the start of the race.

    Okay, Chui. That makes sense. I'm sure thats a huge motivator since she's hit the jackpot twice before.

    In addition to the info you gave about Stockholm, Felix was provided the same lane configuration as was their previous encounter. IMO it seemed to improve her approach to the race.

    Question I have is how many more races does Richards have at faster career to-date than ever before before the improvements halt?

    Richards probably believes that Felix is the true competition in this event. And she obviously would like to remain unbeaten this season. I will be more interested to see how she runs both final regions (curve & home) of the race.

    As many have stated prior, Felix perhaps is using this to heighten stamina and doesn't see much in the way of importance to win. Execution of a training plan I would think. However if the latter were not true, what would she need to do in order to run a low 49 or better?
    Actually Sanya lost to Williams in the 400 in Jamaica to open the season and to Felix in the deuce at Adidas.

    I think it will be a good race but that Sanya will win. These two extremely talented young ladies tend to bring out the best in each other. But Sanya's the best 400m runner in the world and has been for years. And right now she's running very well.

    Felix has only beaten Sanya once in the 400 by .02 and that was on a day when Sanya doubled (she pr'd in the 100 prior to the 400) and Felix didnt. Felix also set her 49.70 pr to do it.. Sanya won comfortably the next two times they raced.

    Sanya 48.99
    Allyson 49.77
