    My hunch is that SMU passes DS with 20 to go and Bowie fades to 3rd after a great turn.

      My exact thoughts.

        I was doubtful on Stevens on another thread but have a little bit of second thoughts on that. Specifically at NCAAs she had lots on her plate in a short period of time (although the 4x100 was out). Here the situation is reversed; almost all of the top athletes are doubling and this is the second event while she and Duncan (and ?) have only the 200 (and maybe the prelim in the relay).

        Opps, Stevens is in the 100..., although she might have just one hard round and not make the Final.

          don't forget that in Beijing Schippers was by far the fastest in the second half of the race.

          1. Dafne Schippers (Hol) 21.63 NR (WL) (3, 4 W)
          (11.2/10.4);
          2. Elaine Thompson (Jam) 21.66 PR (5, =6 W)
          (11.1/10.6);
          3. Veronica Campbell-Brown (Jam) 21.97
          (11.2/10.8);
          4. Candyce McGrone (US) 22.01 PR (=10, x A)
          (11.0/11.0);
          5. Dina Asher-Smith (GB) 22.07 NR
          (11.2/10.9);
          6. Jeneba Tarmoh (US) 22.31
          (11.2/11.1);
          7. Ivet Lalova-Collio (Bul) 22.41
          (11.4/11.0);
          8. Sherone Simpson (Jam) 22.50
          (11.4/11.1).

            She has always had a great finish, but a) I think SMU will be stronger and b) DS doesn't look as fast this year as she did the last two.

              Single race and it's Bowie, add all the other races in the mix and it's wide open.

                I think Bowie will win the 200M.In 21.79 in a close race with the field.

                  Agreed, though I definitely favour Schippers in a championship setting with rounds. I don't think Miller-Uibo is going to have enough gas in the tank to keep up with Schippers and Bowie, but I like her for bronze.

                    Miller-Uibo will be coming on hard but will not be making up much ground on Schippers. She'll pass Bowie though. Ultimately though lane assignments will play a factor. If Miller is stuck in lane 3 or 4, it will be tougher for her.

                    1. Dafne 21.81
                    2. Miller 21.98
                    3. Bowie 22.06

                    What about Ta Lou? I think she'll be dangerous and not one to sleep on!

                      Aye, as I said, and others have just noted, those lane draws will play a role. The SF's are going to be critical. Get 3 top women in the same SF and one of them is going to have a bad lane draw in the final. One of them potentially will anyway; we count lanes 3-7 as the best lanes but if Miller ends up with lane 1, 2 (or even 3), I think she will struggle on the turn with her height and long legs. However, if she gets 6, 7, or 8, that's ideal for her.

                        I totally agree with you that Ta Lou is dangerous. I really wanted to put her in my top three. But with the Big Three, there is no room for Ta Lou. If any of the Big Three has an off day, Ta Lou will be right there to snatch up the bronze medal.

                          Don't know what they're doing here, but note that at London '12 they used lanes 2-9

                            They run in lanes 2-9 while being thought of as Lane 1 - 8. They absolutely should use the bigger bends if available.

                              The only way Miller will get either of the two inside lanes is if she is one of the two fastest non-automatic qualifiers based on time. I don't see that happening.

                              What's more intriguing is if she should purposely run less than 100% in her semi, come in second and then hope she is not the fastest second place finisher. That would guarantee her one of the two outer lanes...
