    I just found out that VCB coach is none other than Omar. WTF was she thinking? I knew something was wrong when she started running those damn awful times. I hope she can bounce back at worlds.

      Congrats to her on a great Olympic double, gold and silver, which is only diminished by the obsurd predictions and expectations of the flag-waiving Jamaicans.

      Don't you think Felix deserves better than this post?
      My post had nothing to do with Felix. SAFP deserved better than the rediculous posts by some of her "fans".

        Correcting for wind in the 200m isn't necessarily as sraightforward as in the 100m, because in this case a cross-wind can provide assistance (or hindrance) on the bend. If you assume that -0.2m/s was completely in the direction of the straight, however, her time would probably be a low 21.7 with a 2m/s following wind.

          Congrats to Allyson and Shelly and Jeter. Shelly got silver with a 22.08 that was a cake walk for vcb.I am so pissed the hell off.
          I think she did focus more on the 100 than the 200... I think she should do a DFM and focus on the 200 from now on in majors... I want her back for Rio and I want her to get the gold... #maniclook. She deserves those 3 gold medals.

            I just heard lance mention something along the lines about VCB thinking of retirement and i was a bit shocked because VCB should now be looking forward to Moscow to retaining her 200m world tittle

              Who is Omar? Her husband? If so, maybe she's trying to save a few "coins." Who knows?

                I really don't think she will drop the 100m when it's the tittle she most desperately wants .But i think she should drop the 100m for next year and focus on lowering that 200m pr and do some 400m to gain some endurance strength

                  I doubt that, VCB will bounce back at worlds.She said once she stop winning medals she will retire. She won a bronze in the 100 and is still world champion.I am sure she will go back to the drawing board and work on whatever needs fixing.
                  Again congrats to Allsyon

                    Yea i am disappointed too, trying to get over the shock.
                    But maybe she focused on the hundred because she thought this was her last good chance to complete the collection.
                    Congrats Felix! Vcb please return to form in 2013

                      It was great to watch Felix win so convincingly and so predictably. What was frustrating is to have to listen to the idiots we have commentating for New Zealand TV. And to quote "The Amecican girl Felix has upset the more favoured Carmelita Jeter".

                            Any real coach would have told her to do this. I mean if your going to double at lease do some 400s.VCB couldn't even break a 22.30 for heaven sakes.Omar should never have been near her training muchless coaching. I know I am going over board but a 22.10 use to be cake walk for vcb. Damn fool to make her husband trained her.I would have rather her not show up for the 200 instead of running a amature 22.38 in a finals.She knew damn well she wasn't in great shape that why she wouldn't answer any questions about the 200.
                            Anyways done with my rant, she is still my queen

                              I really think she knows within her heart what she has to do .VCB does not give up so i think she will be running more 400m next season in order to gain that endurance training but yet still do some 100m to keep her sprint speed . Does anyone know where Allyson goes from here ,does she take up the 400m or does she continue the 200m
