    Without a doubt. Ever since she burst onto the scene in 2008, SAFP has failed to win only 3 times (by my count) in a 100/200 final. And those three times, she got 4th (100m, 2011), silver (200m,...

    Shericka Jackson had a great anchor run last year in the World Cup too. After a dreadful exchange, she almost ran down the Brits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTy9r2cvzjA . She was a great...

    Coleman pretty much won the race on that lead-off, blew the doors off Gemili. Gatlin was okay. Rogers looked like he was going to stumble at the beginning of the exchange with Gatlin. No one...

    Shericka Jackson has run 4x1 anchor before but this was bold after she went back to focusing on the 400 this year. The American announcers kept saying that Dina A-S was on anchor for Britain but...

    Man, De Grasse got out so poorly during the last exchange that is likely cost the Canadian men a spot in the final. He was almost even with Martina as they set off, but was like 3m down by the time...

    Unlucky Canada! Running that time and missing out?! Insane.

    I honestly thought Rodgers got hurt at the end, almost looked like he was pulling up and also seemed dangerously close to running...

    I always feel sad that the Ivory Coast doesn't have two more above average sprinters to pair with Ahoure and Ta Lou.

    Agree with this...Nasser is amazing to just put it all on the line like that knowing full well that she will be losing ground to SMU at the end. It showed supreme confidence and a lot of guts, hats...

    I think she could give it a go and run probably 22.1-22.2 but I don't think she's sub 22...and definitely not in DAS territory. 21.8 is very select company.
  16. I think you have a minor error in your splits. ...

    I think you have a minor error in your splits. SMU second 100 was only 11.9 not 11.5...Nasser ran 11.1. That is pretty much where the race was won. Nasser was aggressive and knew her fitness that...

    Also MJP topped out at 21.99 and even 22.0x during her magical 96 season. Nasser has amazing speed endurance rather than flat out foot speed, at least to me. Felix is a 21.7 runner but go...

    This is SMU's first defeat in the 200/400 since when?

    Disagree. You swap their lanes and it's quite possible Naser can't tee off SMU and runs a more conservative first half while SMU just gauges her race better, especially if the goal is to win the...

    Gotta hand it to Naser though, she ran so fast over the first 200m and certainly didn't run out of gas in the homestretch, a special talent.
  21. I agree, I think SMU never thought Naser could go...

    I agree, I think SMU never thought Naser could go so fast over the first 300m and have enough to win. SMU ran a great race, Naser was just a little bit better. Makes you wonder about lane draws,...

    As a fan, it would be really hard to cheer against DAS no matter what country you personally root for. Very classy. Despite the absences of the other top names, she deserves all the credit in...

    I don't think DAS can run SAFP down but I also don't think SAFP can run Dina down. SAFP is far from a pushover in the last 50m, her top speed and maintenance is better than ever, perhaps only 10.7...
