    I wasn't expecting this. I thought she would've opted for the 200m. Does this mean she is out of the 4x100m?

    Makes it more likely SAFP adds the 200 to her Worlds itinerary?

    If you're a medal hound this is not good news for the USA. If Felix ran the 200 then McCorory would be a favorite for a medal, possibly gold. With Felix in the 400, the USA may not fill her spot on the medal stand in the half lap.

    I don't think she's ducking, but certainly they see an easier path to gold in the 400m. The 200m wasn't going to be easy.

    I'm disappointed, that 200m race with Thompson and Schippers and Okagbare and Ahoure and everyone else was going to be epic.

    Not sure it's ducking as much as finding the clearest harbor. With McCorory, SRR, and Montsho out the competition is quite light in the 400.

    What The Flying Pigdog said.

    Yes most certainly less competition in the 400 (Miller is no pushover and will be in good shape come WC) i think her coach wants her to go out on top in regards to the WC as he probably doesn't see her getting a chance to Win Gold at the Next WC.

    Isn't that the same thing as ducking the competition though, i mean she pulled out and ran the much much easier race of which i totally understand. I guess its a matter of perspective.

    Though this could just all be premature and she really wants to double... i will wait and see.
