    He ran the Olympic Trials marathon in February and DNFed. Some people assumed that would be his last race, but he didn't announce his retirement until now.

    Also, what about Alysia Montano?
    MontaƱo gave birth to her third child (a boy) this morning. (Yes, I know--that doesn't answer the question.)

    '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.

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

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

    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.
