    DAS’ race to lose.

      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?

        I've long learned that it is wise not to count on Okagbare in any sort of global champs, but who knows, maybe the 100 mixup will motivate her.

          Please remind me of her global champs record.

            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....

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

                Double commonwealth champion in 2014 for what it’s worth

                  Okagbare has two LJ medals; Oly silver (upgraded from bronze) from 2008, and WC silver from 2013.

                    Commonwealth gold, meh...lots of countries and athletes missing. And the LJ medals, ya, I'll give her that, was more talking about the sprints. She has run some phenomenal times on the circuit but rarely delivers on the track in Olympics or Worlds.

                      I would say no way was Okagbare getting a medal before I watched the 100 final. Now with Thompson not at her best due to her Achilles and Schippers carrying another injury to add to her back, there is an opportunity for Okagbare. If she fails to medal here, with no SMU, no SAFP, and an injured Thompson and Schippers then theres no helping her!

                        Why was Okagbare not in the 100m? Nigerian Federation issues?

                          Yeah, her 100m performance has probably bolstered her confidence, so I think DAS should take this pretty easily. Probably 21.9x with a three-tenths winning margin.

                            Quick Schippers update: Coach Bennema said she felt her groin at 10m into the 100m SF and from 20-40m couldn't 'stretch' out. It was his decision to withdraw her to prevent further injury. They will decide (now) during her warm up for the 200m heats whether she continues or not.

                              Schippers DNS, Ta Lou DNS

                              No SMU, no SAFP, no Schippers, no Ta Lou, Thompson not in form....this event went from looking potentially good at the start of this season to this.

                                Agreed. Whoever signed off on this event schedule should be fired.
