        Excluding Jones who's not going to Berlin, we now have 7 athletes with SBs between 12.50 and 12.60. Any one of them could be the world champion.

          I still think Harper will win in Berlin, but really there are 5 or 6 that can win and we will not have Lolo and Kallur (as far I know) in Berlin.

            Of course they could be, but they'll only be one, now who will that be?

            I'm going with Dawn.

              As a damn proud Canadian, I have to go with Dawn also...
              It would be good to see Lolo on the start line as well. It's always good to see Lolo ... :wink:

                i wouldn't count out Ginnie Powell after her 12.64 in the heat
                she was going very well in the final too before hitting that hurdle, i think she would've gone under 12.60 for sure

                and there's also defending champion Michelle Perry

                so, actually we have 9 world class hurdlers fighting for 8 spots in the final :shock:

                  I was about to say, I'm not forgetting about Perry at ALL...she did the same in '07 IMO, and she is the best at leaning at the line at whatever cost to win!

                    Love it. That's why I watch track.

                    Dream come true knowing you will have 8 competitors in the final with the ability to bring home gold. That's what WORLD-CLASS competition is all about!

                      So who was it who questioned how poster "mojo" was qualified to call the final a potential crap-shoot? Good luck trying to pick a winner.

                        You got that wrong, I never questioned any qualifications, mojo said in the context...he was picking Sally and I simply asked, how did you come to that conclusion.

                          Mojo is a she, and is extremely well qualified to comment on the Hurdles.
                          Some of the comments that followed her post, as I recall, were just being playful about her "crap-spoot", which we all realized was just a typo.

                            My bad on the he, I didn't know. Again let me state, it's not about questioning any qualifications. :wink:

                              Let me rephrase this for clarity: *this event is a crap shoot* was what "mojo" wrote. The crap-shoot comment from "mojo" preceded the McClellan pick. You questioned how she derived that crap-shoot conclusion, which isn't to ask how she was qualified, but did question her reasoning skills.

                              Nevertheless, you've made it clear you've not questioned the capacity of "mojo" to have the aptitude to reason that the door is wide open for any number of women to win.

                                you need qualifications to post here? heck, i have none and it never stopped me from saying something. and i'm sure i'm not the only one.

                                i understand why mojo said it's a "crap snoot", and i think it's because there's not one athlete that is dominating over the others, they way liu xiang was for while, and dayron robles is now. the top women are not showing tremendous dominance, and there's also some inconsistency among them that makes it really hard to predict a winner. i mean, one day someone puts on a great race, and the next day, they hit a hurdle and finish 6th (e.g. powell). but why do you people think 8 or 9 women can win this thing in berlin? i think it's more like 5: mclellan, harper, lopes, foster-hylton and perry.
