      Anyone knows which two meets she talking about?

      She will be 33 in 2010.
      Aaron ran a couple sub-11 in her low-40's, Chandra Stirrup and DFM are running sub-11's, and of course Merlene PB'd at 36 :shock: :shock: So its very much possible IMHO, it just takes a certain type of drive and hunger thats all.

        If it's end of September, then it must be the mini tour of Asia. So Daegu, Shanghai and I think there's a meet in Japan.

              Torri can come back and: win the US chmapionship, the World Cmapionships, Olympic Games, set a world record in both the 100 and 200. But........please, please, please, please, please do not ever allow her on another USA women's 4x100 relay again!

                I thought she was a decent relay runner.

                  She is a solid relay runner and passer but some on the board blame her for everything that befalls the USA 4/100 ladies
                  LW is the problem on relays

                    The only knock I've consistently heard about Tori and the relays was her running anchor (besides the stick problem with LW last year). Running starts don't seem to be her forte.

                    I always thought we were missing the boat with her not being on first. She has an incredible start from the blocks but I'm not sure how effectively she runs the curve.

                      What we learned in Beijing was that Torri should have been third leg all these years. Lost in the dropped pass was the fact that she blistered that bend. I have never been sold on her on first leg. She has run her best legs in the middle of the relay, including a second leg run in 2000 that her detractors seem to not know about.

                        I have always advocated for Torri getting locked in a bathroom, locker room, or closet during the relay.

                        She is been a disaster in the relays , PERIOD.
