    This is promising since neither squad was at full strength (Norman, Benjamin, Bloomfield, Allen all either injured or not 100% healthy).

    Hassan putting her CV together for GOAT submission. Just a stellar run and phenomenal final lap!

    Very disappointing that they're not giving the hurdlers who went 52.17 and 52.23 yesterday an opportunity to run the 4x4 with the quarter-milers who went 49.6 and 49.61 in the open 400m final....

    Yeah, I think for that world record to be broken by the US, you'd need present-day McLaughlin, and a time machine to get: Richards-Ross circa 2009, Felix circa 2015, and Torrence circa 1993.

    Not sure if anyone's asked this question yet, but how much faster, if any, would Naser have run without those additional mixed 4x4 runs in her legs?

    I know she's had some losses this year, too, so not sure if her track record disqualifies her, but she's certainly in the conversation for POY!

    Brilliant runs from both of the big names! I'd said that Muhammad looked just that bit better through the rounds, and she emerges victorious today! I do believe she's the better technician, and...

    And Jackson's said she's running the 4x1 as well!

    So the Jamaican line-up may well be: Williams-Jackson-Smith-SAFP. With clean hand-offs, that squad's as good as gold.

    Wow, I think that just may have been the greatest race I've ever seen.

    It's been nine hours and I still can't believe it. Naser ran what is effectively the actual WR, and she led by some margin at...

    Samba took down Benjamin in Shanghai early this season (47.27 vs. 47.8).

    I could be wrong, but Muhammad has been looking better through the rounds than McLaughlin to me. I think she etches out the victory on Friday.

    So happy for Asher-Smith! She comes off as such a darling, "track's sweetheart," I like to call her. She showed a lot of promise in Beijing 2015 and London 2017, but was either a bit too young and in...

    Holloway looked like the world champion in the semi, so kudos to him for coming through with the win.

    Shame about McLeod's performance here. It sucks that he impeded Ortega.

    I'm happy to see...

    Well, I expected 19.7x so I wasn't too far off. It may have been a tenth faster were he in an outside lane, but he's not in his best shape now. I'm happy it was still good enough to get him gold,...

    Even without Thompson, Jamaica had two other ladies who made the finals, one of them the world champion, who's a clear meter better than anyone else in Doha right now. Jamaica still has the...

    So the US sweep is probably not going to happen, but I'm excited to see who, between McLaughlin and Muhammad, looks better in the semis.

    I just find it a bit strange to have someone walk away with two golds from essentially the same event at the same championships. That's a big part of the reason I think Okolo and Felix should be...

    This is a really diluted final. At any rate, Asher-Smith's drawn a great lane and should be on her way to a 21.9x and clear victory. If she wins, which looks super probable at the moment, I don't...

    Third 400 global final in a row where Miller-Uibo gets an outside lane. Hope she keeps her head, runs her own race, and clocks in the 48.5 I know she's capable of delivering.

    Stephen Francis seems to have given his charges specific instructions about running a hard first 300, so I'm not sure what kind of shape Jackson's really in. I'll take a chance and choose her over...

    If Miller-Uibo had a legitimate world record to chase, she'd have it, in my opinion. I think she goes 48-mid if she gets the race right, but she should win even if she messes up a bit.

    Miller-Uibo looks supreme. 49.66 and there looks to be easily another second or more there!
