    The question is: is she capable of running sub 22 again? I wonder if she is, then that's what she'll push for though the risk of injury is higher. It means she can then be eligible for both relays if...

    Surely Daniels on the second leg? She builds nicely throughout the 100m and her 200m PB is 22.5 from this year. Brown off a 200m silver and PB for the final leg?
