    All I can remember as far as medals go is a bronze in w200 in 2013.

    No British athlete, male or female, has ever won the gold medal for 200 meters at the Worlds or Olympics. I don't see Okagabare anywhere near DAS next week, except perhaps in a warmup area....

    DAS definitely the favourite now. Even if Ta Lou is back to her 2017 form at 200, the way Thompson was closing on her in the 100m final, Thompson should still beat her. Schippers was looking good to get in the podium until that adductor strain. Now she will struggle. I wonder if Okagbare can get back on the podium again?

    This is DAS' race, she will probably go sub 22 and I don't think anyone else can go there, especially given Thompson's form and SAFP bowing out.

    Ta Lou looks great over 100 here. Her 200s have been average to poor this year, so not sure how much speed endurance training she has done....but then I never expected tes 10.85, so she may well surprise!

    Based on what we’re seeing in the heats and semi’s of the 100 I would say Asher-Smith is the favorite for the 200?

    Yep, Thompson is listed. If she pulled out she couldn't start the relay.

    This is disappointing to hear. I wonder if Thompson will follow suit, as she's said she's not a big fan of the 200.

    I imagine she would've been taking it seriously anyway but that's a huge shame. She would have been a solid medal contender.
