        41.89 Jamaica

        SAF ran an EXCELLENT second leg though! And Simone ran a blistering first leg too!

          I don't like SAF on that 2nd leg, but 41.89 shows that they are ready...........

          Throw VCB in there, have Kerron run all out and the WR is on........

            Agreed.

            What order would you do Phil?

                Not to undermine an incredible heat run by Jamaica, or be Ferguson cheerleader again ..but BAHAMAS pop a huge season's best and barring a dropped baton, look like a LOCK for bronze. Christine Amertil could actually get a World Outdoor medal.....

                The really ANNOYING thing is that this team was available last year but never got around to running together ergo didn't qualify for Beijing where as it so happened, they could have reclaimed their Olympic title. That was a very REAL chance, let slip. :cry:

                Come on Debbie, 2 medals.

                      Hmmm, a couple could work.

                      SAF to start makes the most sense to me. I'd throw Kerron out there for the 2nd leg. Run Bailey or Facey (Facey the better turn runner) on leg 3 and have VCB close.

                      But, it looks like they want Kerron to anchor so with VCB coming into run that 3rd leg I would go:

                      SAF-Bailey-VCB-Kerron....

                      It would be a shame to waste SAF's start. She does the most damage over the first 50m but after that she can be run down. She needs to be on that starting leg to maximize her contribution.

                          Germany looked sharp. But I'm not sure they can hang with the Bahamas or even T&T for that matter. That first heat was a bit stacked......

                            Channel Surfing via Universal it's back now

                            Man that 2nd heat was slow.. lol, good for Germany who knows they may get a Bronze with a good lane.


                            Phil - Yeah I'd rather see SAF at the start, ah well.


                            WHAT DID I SAY!

                              I agree with that. She ran a good 2nd leg, but she would have run a monster 1st leg. Besides that Kerron or VCB would be good on both the curve and straight, but VCB has a slight better curve.
