    Is this the only opportunity for a country to truly sweep the medals?

    Can Harrison successfully win a medal?

      Ethiopia has a pretty decent chance in the m3000 with Barega, Gebrhiwet and Kejelcha.

        I wonder where Sally's 12.6s get her over the 60mh. Maybe 7.90. I am sure she's timed herself in training or done some analysis to come all this way to race and then head back to a home Commonwealth Games.

        I hope Harrison keeps it together and makes the podium. That said, if she does fail, maybe she should go back to the 4oomh, where there are relatively fewer risks over a longer race?

          Susanna Kallur, the INdoor WR holder at 7.68, has a 100H OUTdoor PR of 12.49.
          With a wind of 0.9.

          It's always interested me why hurdlers with faster 100H times than Kallur haven't SMASHED her 7.68 WR!!
          Doesn't even have to be the WR holder (K Harrison)---could be ANYone who's faster than her OUTdoors!

            A few points:
            1) There's no perfect correlation between times in the 60 and 100, either on the flat or over the hurdles. Some people are much better in one or the other.
            2) Sprinters are not usually in their very best shape in winter.
            3) Kallur looked like she was in the form of her life in early 2008. She beat her previous best by 0.12, and it wasn't a one-off, either - she had five runs of 7.75 or better. She could have smashed her outdoor best, too, except she got injured and thus had a very limited season, missing the OG. She never returned to that sort of form afterwards.

              I'm betting on her running faster than that. Maybe not quite at PB level, but close to 7.80. She's run 12.68 into 1.3 headwind, which is a very good time for February. I know the Americans are worth more in principle, but I'm not sure they'd run a lot faster at this time of the year.

                Maybe Kallur was more like Nelli Cooman? Perfect over 60m, but the 100 were too long for her.

                  Considering the field of US ladies is just as deep, she may not see much success there either.

                    Re the sweep, let's not rule out Roleder sneaking a medal just yet, as she has a habit of raising her game and coming through at the end when it matters.

                    On Kallur, I agree with Powell; her indoor 2008 season saw her in her best form ever, and she would probably have smashed her outdoor PB that summer, but alas injury struck. I personally don't see her as just a 60mh talent, she certainly was capable at the full outdoor distance, it was just that untimely injury that prevented her from showing what she could ultimately do.

                      Yeah I don't see her as a 60 specialist. This is someone who won several Golden League meets, I think 3 or 4 in the season before that WR(this site ranked her #2 for the 2007 season), and then got injured heading into next summer and never came back to that level again.

                      Chances of breaking it in Birmingham? Good.

                        Its been said above but Kallur was a decent finish in her 100mh races so if she'd stayed healthy, I think a 12.30 was more than possible.

                        I'd like to think that Sally would be in 7.80 shape, I forgot the headwind for her earlier runs.

                        Regarding Harrison I listened to a great podcast from Flotrack who spoke to her coach Eldrick Floreal about her set up with Mclaughlin, McLeod and Carter:

                          Given the current world list

                          1 7.70 Sharika NELVIS
                          2 7.72 Kendra HARRISON
                          3 7.73 Christina MANNING
                          4 7.83 Pamela DUTKIEWICZ
                          5 7.84 Cindy ROLEDER
                          6 7.88 Alina TALAY

                          I'm going to belabor the obvious and posit it will come down to who can break 7.80, and right now that's the Amis.

                            I think that ruling out Sally is silly, she probably is in better overall shape than anyone with the CWG at home and the incentive to get that Gold, and she has not been pressed yet. She has the most seasoning by far (cf Harrison).

                              But S.Kallur didn't miss the Beijing 2008. She hit the hurdle and fell. 'member?
