    Definitely no electronic blocks for her 49.22 race in Namibia

      If you consider how hard it is to get records ratified at the NCAA Championships, where they always use electronic starting blocks and have drug testers on site, it doesn't bode well for WJR's for either of these two African athletes.

        This may give some clues as to why her original WJR was not ratified yet: both Mboma and Masiligi have been withdrawn from the 400m on the Road to Tokyo rankings. They are qualified and still appear in the 200m though.

        Make of that what you will.
        WA will not be able to keep that sort of story quiet for long.

        But I have definitely noted they have not hyped them as much as you would expect for posting such results. So again: Make of that what you will.

            having a drug tester on site and having WA protocols followed aren't necessarily the same thing

            • Regarding technique: Mboma has an odd arm swing vaguely remindful of De Grasse, especially when he first came to prominence a few years ago. But given her recent performances maybe we need to re-think common notions of running mechanics instead of wanting to overhaul her style.
              As for the rest of the red hot speculative issues raised on this thread... best to sit back and see what develops rather than voice suspicions and innuendo.

                Bingo.

                  I think that's pretty obvious, isn't it?

                      no, because USATF rules regarding testing are different than what WA requires

                        Can’t wait for the likes of Felix and SMU and SRR to have been nothing but slow pokes!

                          Yeah, that's what I meant. Each different organization has their own testing protocols which is why Sha'carri Richardson is recognized as having the 100 CR, the 100 AJR but not the 100 WJR. It seems like the NCAA Championships is where there are the most problems satisfying all the different governing bodies at 9ne time though I was encouraged when I read that one of Athing Mu's records was ratified by World Athletics earlier this year.
