    Harper has lost one race since the Olympics, If that's not dominant then what is?
    errrr....Sally has lost how many races since the Olympics???

    Would that be ONE ???

    ... and just how many did Dawn win BEFORE the Beijing final ????

    PS - to answer my own question - that would be 0/9 (inc heats)..

    Mind you the race she lost she had just started heavy training again and wasn't in Europe for more than 10 hours.

    Looks pretty dominant to me and one I would certainly considered THE favorite.

    Sally got a medal too, an unexpected one at that, she definitely has the confidence too.... don't sleep on that. Sally can definitely upset, and I wouldn't be anywhere near surprised if she does.
    I don't think Dawn was expected to medal either, and a bronze AT best. I understand what your saying about Sally, but I think Harper would have to LOSE the race much like Lolo did at the Olympics.

    If Sally flat out beat Harper in a 'clean' race, i'd be floored.[/quote:3itnfr9c]

    I think thats a rather big statement, I don't think Harper is THAT dominant.

    I can see any of 6 women winning now with no surprise.

    Harper. Lopes. Sally. Cherry. Felicion. Perry

    Throw in two or so Jamaicans and it gets even closer!

    I been saying since that 12.74 in a -1.3 back in March that Sally is going to be the one to beat come Berlin... I still stand by this belief.

    As hard as the hurdles are to predict (especially on the women side) I am gonna stick to my prediction.
    Sally has beaten Harper once this season at Lausanne. I'm not going to make excuses for Haprer, because a loss is a loss. But when you look at ALL the circumstances, its hard to say Harper isnt the favorite. Harpers last race she got out terrible and mowed the WHOLE field down by hurdle 6.

    I dont think we will see Harper with a start that bad again either.
    On top of that, Dawn winning the Olympics, was a great confidence builder and that's an understatement. Best believe that's big, Sally doesn't have that on her side

    Being the Olympic champ and finishing 2nd, which as we know would have been 3rd, not the same thing. Not sleeping on her, more like going with Dawn, one has nothing to do with the other.[/quote:hb9snhsw]

    Its completely logical you going with Harper. And I admit Harper is the favorite coming off the season she had. I still like Sally's chances (it's a mere preference) and seeing that the hurdles is such an unpredictable event and the women's hurdles being so close, its almost clearly understandable why Sally seems to have a great chance to get gold. Favorites tend to disappoint alot when it comes to the 100m hurdles.

    As much as I want Sally to win, I think Dawn probably has the edge.
    Sally is still so young and will not peak for at least a few years However I have never met anyone with as much determination as Sal. I think it will be Dawn and Sally 1st and 2nd (either way) with Perdita 3rd.

    Well we all make picks that are really just crap shoots- with some notable exceptions of course.

    I think McLellan is the "favourite" if there can be one in this event because she has been winning the last few races-she seems to have the momentum.

    I wouldn't bet the house on her or anyone in the women's hurdles...men's 100 and 200 yeah I just might be willing to put my rickety old place up for grabs.

    Of course I want both Perdy and Priscilla to medal-they have not been consistent enough for me to pick either one for gold but I would love that to happen!

    Perdita will medal! Going back to my earlier comment, she like's rounds. Aside from that, she is a d*** tough competitor.

    P.S.
    Monaco, your loss
