    Can't think of any world-class sprinters who were initially multi eventers, but in other events, women like Naide Gomes, Tia Hellebaut and Barbora Spotakova progressed spectacularly in their...

    I didn't say BIG favorite. But she's improved at both 60 and 100 already this year, and her 200 season debut was faster than last year. She's got every chance of running faster than she did in...

    I don't think anyone's hanging a medal around her neck in the 100. IMO she's an outside medal contender at best in that event, but I consider her the favorite in the deuce.
