    whoaaaa.... i hope this is not too OT but just went to the universal sports website, and they have a slide show of athletes training in daegu. i was so shocked to see the pics of caster semenya. she has developed breasts! she's definitely on hormone therapy. even a few months ago in some races in europe, she did not look like what she looks now.

      Too lazy to look, but if she has, all the more reason not to pick her to medal . . . it would mean the estrogen (or lack of testosterone?) is unmasculizing her.

        I looked and couldn't see much difference.

              This might the best most unpredictable event of the WChs. I think you can easily make the case that about a dozen women have a realistic shot at a medal.

                powell, don't be snarky. i said on these boards months ago that when i saw video of her racing in europe that she looked a bit "hippier" and "bustier" but it was very slight. i'm shocked at her transformation.

                i still pick jepkosgei to win this. why you people like savi so much?

                  I think for those of us who like Savinova in this meet, it has to do with the 1:56 she's run this year. That said, in my imaginary betting world, I'm with you -- I'd put my imaginary $$ on Jepkosgei (although this event seems totally unpredictable this time around).

                    master po, was that race in russia? cause i think they tend to run well at home and not so much outside. in any event, this will be a tremendous event, it'll be crazy. i just wish jelimo was not kaput...

                      1:56.9, 1:57.0 and 1:57-high? is my vague memory from the Russian Championship meet.

                          That may be true of some (many) Russians, but certainly not Savinova. You're talking about the reigning World Indoor and European champion, so when she sets a PB, it is significant.
