    I started a new thread on IAAF Transfer of Allegiance. We seem to have passed outside the zone on this topic.

    The astonishing thing is that they'd have only placed 5th with that time; in almost any other OG or WC that would have been a medal time, and in 2008 it would have won gold even before the Russian DQ.

    I think of Regina George who represented USA at world Juniors in 2010 but then within 2 years represented Nigeria from London 2012 to present.

    Is representation as a youth/junior different than the senior level? Also I'm not actually clear on the nation change rules than may, or may not, have been updated recently.

    an exploration of the Cunliffe situation from a year ago (and with the current IAAF stance on nation-change, she's probably locked in as an American for the foreseeable future):

    As I said earlier, don't count Texas A&M out because while LSU and Oregon occupy five of the top seven spots on the 100 performance list, the Aggies occupy three of the top seven spots on the 200 performance list. Let's see what happens at the SEC Relays two weeks from now.

    At the great risk of derailing the discussion in a way I don't want it to go, this is possibly the biggest thing that irks me about the national affiliation thing. You can choose to compete for a nation in which you have never resided.

    Anyway, looks like I'm going to the NCAAs this June and this race is circled in red on my paper copy of the meet schedule. It's going to be great fun to watch.

    She probably counts as both American and Italian until she actually represents one of them. Her most certain path to competing in the Olympics is as an Italian. Her most certain path to a medal is on the US relay team

    No, she never competed for Italy and at this point she's certainly good enough to make the American team for London. Perhaps if she doesn't, then she could offer her services to Italy, but for now she would count as an American in the relay.

    There was talk of her wanting to run for Italy, but I don't think anything ever came of it!

    All of LSU's runners are American, but there's been some questions about Cunliffe. By the way, six of the eight runners ran open 100's afterwards:
    • Stevens - 11.00
      Washington - 11.06
      Johnson - 11.09
      Brisco - 11.14
      Hobbs - 11.18
      Martin - 11.45

    As would LSU (all they all Americans?).

    I wonder what they could have done at Clermont? 41.5??
