    Dawn retired to start a family, is that right? As long as she's healthy, she could still be a contender, though the US 100mh team continues to be one of the toughest to make.

      I agree, and if anything, seeing Felix, SAFP and Nia Ali in Doha only fueled her drive to make the team even more. Buy the time trials rolls along, it will only have been a "short" 2+ years since she won World silver. The 100m hurdles are always tough, but I haven't seen a drastic change in the state of the event since then.

        The major change is that, Doha notwithstanding, it's not as USA-dominated as it has been. Williams and Amusan will be forces to be reckoned with in Tokyo.

          True, but still not too much of a change since she has been battling Pearson her entire career.

            And she has just announced she's pregnant - due just before Tokyo.

                    'PSD' was one of those athletes who got injured just as it looked like she might break through to the very elite. I wonder what she will do, she has a very engaging personality.
