    I think you'd find that most high-end athletes/coaches would rebel mightily if the 200 were run before the 100.

    I still don't think Seyni medals this time; she's still a 400 runner, who takes a while to get going. But if she trains for Tokyo with the 200 in mind...

    Get ready to exercise your shrugging muscles some more, now that it's confirmed that Seyni switched from the 400m to the 200m as a result of the DSD regulations (story linked on the front page).

    My casual track fan co-workers don't understand why She Who Was Born to Run isn't in the 200. "Why wouldn't they make the schedule so she could run?" being the question.

    I could only shrug.

    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.
    And I hope whatever scheduling alterations that needs to be done so the top stars can pull off a 1/200 or 2/400 double WITH proper rest is done soon in the coming months.

    Straight clowns whoever is responsible for scheduling.

    The 100 and 400 should always kick-off a major meet. With an appropriate day off and everyone meeting up in the 200 during the latter half of the meet.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

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