    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.
    Ridiculous scheduling by the iaaf. The athletes that run the 100 had a very quick turnaround and Miller-Ubo ruled it out even before the meet start due to overlap with the 400

      IAAF didn't help with their retarded scheduling. Meant SMU could not take part and it is equally retarded that the 200m starts less than 24hours after the 100m finals. That is probably why Ta Lou pulled out and Coleman didn't do the 200m either. IAAF's incompetence appears legendary.

        Yeah, very disappointing with the injuries and the schedule. Might be good for the Americans, though, getting into the final at least -- maybe having a chance to medal.

          At least one US female sprinter is in form here. Brittany Brown with a PB in the heats.

            I have a feeling Bryant is going to do well also.

              Not as impressive as Brown, but looking good enough to make the final, I would think.

                As the 100 is such a high profile event there tends to be a lot of media interest and demand for interviews after the race which can take a lot of time and having the 200 start the next day is far from ideal.

                  Seyni with a huge NR of 22.58. Looks like she can make an impact in the 200, too.

                    Ta Lou has apparently had knee problems since the All-Africa Games, and that's why she scratched; though she did run 10.85/10.87/10.90 on that knee, so we can certainly speculate about the scheduling...

                      Okagbare showing as DQ.

                      Looks like she stepped on the line just as she was transitioning into the straight.

                      She crossed the line only in fourth but probably would qualify on time.

                              This event looking like a dud but on a good day it is actually the most competitive high quality female event.

                                Annelus looking impressive. With the field being what it is (and ET still looking sub-par), we could well see an American on the podium. Possibly even two?
