        It looks like she went out like it was a 400 and then, as she came off the curve . . . 'oh crap, there's the finish line!'

          That was incredible. It also looks like she sort of stumbles with about 30m to go but continues to catch the leader.

            It looks like she ran the last 100m in about 10.7 if my timings are correct. That is fast. Wonder how it compares to someone like SMU's last 100?

              That is definitely a case where the conventional wisdom is incorrect. She was going faster from 130-180m than anywhere else.

                She looked like she was about to fall over half way down the straight as she was trying to catch everyone.

                Will be interesting to see what she is able to do in a championship setting over multiple rounds vs top competition.

                  As long as she can parcel out her speed over the rounds. We have seen people go crazy-fast in the prelims and not be able to sustain it in the final.

                    Thats what I'm thinking about. Both Mboma and Masilingi have no experience, just these random fast times. And even at thoes Namibian Champs, they both ran super slow in the heats (56 and 57) then dropped to the 49 second runs, which is strange in the sense of they may just not know how to run rounds properly.

                    In the heats/semis in Tokyo, if they get caught sleeping at 250-300 and have to do hard all out sprints to the finish just to qualify through, that wont bode will if they they get to the final and are against women who evenly distributed their effort across the 3 rounds.

                        Rough n ready analysis, courtesy of the fabulous Pierre-Jean on Twitter:

                        50m Splits
                        6.8 12.00 17.3 22.67
                        6.8 5.2 5.3 5.4

                        "5.4 last 50m (even losing balance)was outstanding. At 2015 WCh Schippers and Thompson covered the last 50m in 5.46 & 5.54.."

                        So yes, a 10.7 second 100m. Lets see them* race more on the international circuit, and then which event they* enter in Tokyo. But at the moment, if they do run the 400m, they are going to be the wildcards (they wont factor at 200m with that start, you cant run every round flat out like that)

                        *when I say them and they, I mean both young Namibian sprinters, obviously.

                          Masilingi is due to run the 400 tomorrow at the Kusociński Memorial, her first European race at the distance (she ran the 200 in Prague some 2 weeks ago)

                            49.88 for Masilingi in Chorzów. The conditions were great for sprinting, but it looked like she set off too fast and died a bit at the end. Still won by a big margin.

                              If it still gets you a good lane and you don't have to surge at any stage, running 56 or 57 could be considered running rounds properly.

                                Serious question here. Do we have a Senenya tyoe situation with these two new "ladies"? Either their coach is a magician or he he likes his girls with a little something special. Anyone knows whats goin on?
