    She is fine, trust me.
    Muna's biggest weakness is headwinds, and -3.7 m/s is like kryptonite for her, for reasons that are self-evident.

          Yea plus she said that her focus this year is the 100 and the GL jackpot. She may have a tough time sharing the jackpot however. SHe has yet to face Jeter, Fraser and Veronica in the GL meets over 100m.

              Not sure what you call close. She has only run and won 2 out of 6 GL meets. The third GL meet is this Friday in Rome. At some point, she is going to meet Jeter, Frazer and VC on the GL circuit.

                  Anyone catch Ato's comments during the 200m race? First, he said Stewart is doubling at WC. Is there any way Jamaica can add her to the team since she opted out of the 200m at their championships? Second, he said running into a -3.7 wind you can take off almost a second for Stewart's time. That's seem a bit much. It what he says is true then Williams and Knight just ran very low 22s, and Stewart was well under 22.
                  He said that? I doubt he saw what I saw 28 years ago:

                  407 22.30 -4.3 Evelyn Ashford USA 15.04.57 1 Sacramento 21.06.1981

                  FloJo ran 23.09 in this race for 2nd. If what he said is true, Evelyn would have had the WR for 7 years with 0.0 wind; maybe 21.4x with 1.9 wind. What exactly does both races (Kerron's and Evelyn's) convert to, with 0.0 and 2.0 wind?

                    all this wind calculation business is pure speculation. the time is what the clock says it is. i know it was raining, but whoever crosses the finish line wins that particular race. anyway...

                      Some of the fastest times have been run during or right after rainfall, fyi.

                      Matter of fact, last May, Bolt set his former WR in the 100m's right after it rained for about 20 or so minutes!

                        again all this is pure speculation. If Carl Lewis had a 2.0 wind in Colorado in the early 80s in his peak and got all of the baord he would have jumped over 30 feet in the long jump. well as we know he never got these conditions and never got off that jump. so please lets end the "if x athlete had 2.0 wind at this meet he would have run y time". the new olympic and world championship venues are enclosed such that wind is going to be NEGLIGIBLE (between -1 to + 1). It is unlikely we will see a lot of championship races run in 2.0 wind anymore.

                          There are a couple reasons I can think of that rain before an event could help a sprint time, and they are basically the same as increasing altitude.

                          1) Rain tends to happen during low pressure systems, so the air is less dense than normal.
                          2) Strangely enough, humid air is less dense than dry air of the same pressure.

                          I have no idea how much difference these effects have; it could negligible, it could be measurable.

                            Same thing was said last year when VCB was fourth and, rumour or not, never happened. But if it had, 3rd place SAF has never run that 10.78 for gold in Beijing, a faster time than the great VCB's best time

                              why? because she's so tall and skinny?

                                Not so much in her height, but she's all of about 115 lbs,on her 5-7 frame.
