      She's crawled out of the woodwork so many times now, you'd think she had some roach in her (ugh, that was an unintendedly ugly analogy), but I just don't think she can pull it off again this time. But maybe . . .

          I'm sure she will make the final. She might not win the title but I'll be very surprised if she fails to make the final.

                    SR is never going to be a lock in a championship given her condition, at least from the perspective of the average interested fan because we are not going to know the true details. There are too many others that can step up if SR is having a so-so day or runs a poorly structured race.

                      She certainly is coming in to the WC pretty much the way she came into Beijing and Osaka. The question isn't whether she can medal but whether Richards will run 100% in the final. In which case no-one will beat her.

                        I just think SR looks to be running her 400m races so different in comparison to before, if she keeps calm and doesn't let nerves get the better of her, we won't be seeing her blast through the first 200m and dying, but rather being controlled and pulling away.

                        I am not writing CO out though, she will make the final i am sure, and she is still in my picks for a medal.

                          If your "she" is referring to Sanya, in Osaka, of course, she was not even entered in the 400, having finished 4th in the NC/WC trials. In the 200, she ran 22.31 in the quarters and went downhill from there. I would say she looks better this year than last.

                          If you are referring to Christine, "never mind".

                              Christine's form was far from terrible going into Osaka - she ran a 50.2. Going into Beijing she 'only' ran a 50.8 but that was on the slow Crystal Palace track (IIRR it was also quite windy). I'm worried about her this year. On the plus side, she has more basic speed than before but I wonder if by slimming down she has lost some strength/endurance.
