    Shaunae Miller may play with the idea. Lets hope not though. Has she given any idea as to whether or not she will double?

    Kia ora Charley. Therefore would I be correct in saying that lane 2 Hayward had a greater radius than lane 1 IAAF standard, and so on out to lane 8 Hayward having a greater radius than lane 7 IAAF standard,

    If yes, then all this hair pulling anguish is just a load of the proverbial

    Felix almost won her semifinal heat with 50.31 0.03 Behind Francena and looked like she has more in the tank . Well unexpected I have to say since I read many people saying she ran her heat very hard yesterday and almost ran 52. Well next time I will watch the race myself

    The US OT, where former stars go to DNF: Richards Ross, Merritt
    Or to fade away: Dix, Trotter, Feeney, Ryan
    Which Merritt is that?

    Well she's ben lucky with her lane draw for the 400 heats, so it's now down to her to run for a good lane for the next round.

    As for the 200; despite no time this season, you can bet if she is entering that event. she won't be drawn in lanes 1 or 2, because of that ankle and USATF won't let that happen.

    Right ankle, almost certainly lateral side considering the nature of the injury. And she has had to do whatever track work she's done in a clockwise direction so that gives an idea of how critical lanes will be for her. More so in the 200 of course(if she actually runs it), but still no small concern in the 400 with double the torquing distance per race.

    Do we know exactly where the problem is? If it is the lateral (outside) of the right foot or the medial side of the left foot it is more of a problem than if it is on the 'non-stretched' side.

    Maybe, maybe not. I know in an "Olympic Year" people tend to step it up a bit....but the first round results from last yr indicate that it may not be as fast as we think.
