    I agree speed is key, for the 400m and for her as a 200m/400m runner in particular.

    But I don't think she or anyone else needs to run sub 49 to medal. That has never happened before - the fastest...

    The pictures are one thing (I have my personal opinions on how she presents herself but that's subjective) but her IG stories have frequently been time stamped at 2am, 4am etc local time, at night...

    I've mentioned Naser's Instagram exploits on here a few times, but do any of you have Instagram and do you follow her? I continue to be gobsmacked, quite frankly.

    All her IG stories are either her...

    Yes, I think she will be in at least one of those relays.

    The unknown (well, every year is unknown as someone can come out of the woodwork) is that this is Olympic year, and that makes everything...

    I think I agree.
    Of course, there are 3 other women still active that have run faster - Schippers, Thompson & Felix - but the signs are that Felix wont be anywhere near her best and the other two...

    Exactly. Despite saying she will do the 200/400 double (she said this before Doha...has she said this since?) the fact that she was WL in the 200m, but lost the 400m, may impact what she chooses to...

    I agree with this & the rest of your post^. In theory, it would be easier for her to make the US team in the 200m, but come Tokyo, the 400m will be the 'lighter' option in terms of competition.

  8. Felix: should she stick with the 400 or go for the 200 in 2020?

    I saw on Instagram today that Felix plans to open her season over 60m in NYC, her first opener over that distance for 4 years.

    I know y'all are Felix fans, so here's a topic for you (you're...

    @trackk that makes sense, the more urban, industrial south of Sweden leaning towards athletics whilst the more rural, 'snowy' north would do x country skiing. I expect it's probably the same in...

    They are more muscled because the event requires it, but that doesn't mean they couldn't be great runners if they had trained for distance running instead. I'd say x skiing is about total body...

    The WW2 argument makes so much sense when you look back, I'd never though of that before (though I had never really thought about those specific years in athletics).

    I appreciate it's difficult to police every post, but the above is applied inconsistently though, which can be a problem. Also, does this mean that someone like VCB is fair game, because she tested...

    I think El Toro's data shows it is not an outlier, and by implication, there is no evidence that race had wind assistance all the way round.
