    I know it's just heats. But- USA'sians far exceeded my expectations.

      Agree re a US woman on the podium! Kambundji and Lalova don't look strong enough. Pinto looked good but cant see her knocking enough off her PB to medal, and whilst Seyni has an unreal last 100, surely she will be just too far down off the bend? I could see Seyni maybe getting down to 22.4, but I think 22.2-22.35 will be needed for the bronze medal

        Yes ... any of the three could be in contention for a bronze. Seems like DAS is the overwhelming favorite and even though she didn't run top form in the 100, I have to think Thompson is going to get the silver.

          Senyi was in "Lane 1" and will do better in 4/5/6. Running people down is also an advantageous way to run.

            Ain't seen nothin' yet. Just wait till Tokyo, after a whole season of focusing on the 200m.

              More work for Coe.

                I strongly suspect Seyni isn't the only woman competing in the 200 here who has this issue.

                  Didn't see the heats, do you think sub-22 is coming up?

                    Not this season; too slow on the curve. Next season for sure.

                      Shame to see two of the three medalists from London 2017 DNS here. Full credit to the Americans for showing up in surprisingly good form. With the way the competition is looking, I think Thompson might find herself out of the medals here as well. She has to be more aggressive on the bend than she's showing.

                        None of the London 200m medalists are running here now; and only one from Rio/Beijing in Thompson. So out of the 6 women who were on the last 3 global podiums, we only have one competing in Doha in the 200m. That's not good for the event.

                          I think Senyi will be as far down as she needs to be.

                            Huge shame what happened to this event in the end. Several of the top names missed the women's 200m in Beijing back in 2015 too yet that ended up producing one of the best finals ever, but I don't think this will be a repeat of that.

                            DAS should run away from the field. I don't think anyone else will break 22.20.

                              I'm pretty bummed how this went from possibly one of the best events to one of the most depleted. Last year, I was hoping for ET vs. DAS vs. SMU vs. TB vs. DS at the very least.

                              Looking forward to hopefully seeing DAS win that gold, what a great champs for her this will be.

                              EDIT: Yikes, I didn't see the post above mine as I was typing mine. But said virtually the exact same thing! I even wrote out about how 4 years is a lifetime in this event, Dafne and Elaine were running 21.6 and that seems soooo long ago.

                                I imagine most people are saving themselves considering next year's the big one. Fingers crossed they all show up healthy in Tokyo - we could see something special.
