    Any plans for a double(or for that matter returning to the 200) just got a tad more complicated...
    There are no strings on me

    If there were plans, which may have been more talk than plan, they are likely gone. SAFP may be looking harder in that mirror, too.

    If Felix does 200/400, she isn't winning the 200 seeing as how it will be after the 400. The 21.6's could scare SAFP away too.

    It's not about whether Felix can beat Schippers in a one-off or even if Felix can beat Schippers if she runs only the 200m. A 400/200 double would be suicide for her chances though, esp since the 200 is after the 400.

    I'm not withholding any judgment, calling it right now that if she doubles, she isn't winning 200 gold.

    As much as I admire Allyson, especially her disciplined training, if she doubles, or even just the 200 next year, I agree with some that she'd be fighting for a bronze. Hope to see her in the 400, and 4x400 ONLY.

    Now your telling Felix what she should and shouldn't do? She's supposed to be scared to double now? lol

    So she should only contest events where you think she is guaranteed the GOLD?? So Now Felix should just give up the 200m? LOL smh

    No, I'm not telling her what to do nor am I implying she should be scared to double. I am of the opinion though that if she wants a gold medal, she shouldn't double or it will be 2011 all over again and she leaves with a silver and a bronze. History could very well repeat itself.

    Whatever though, that's my thought and you may very well think she can run 3 rounds of 200, 3 rounds of 400 and deliver lifetime bests in both. I don't.

    You said she needs to stick to the 400m. Then implied that she wont challenge them if she doesnt only run the 200m, and will leave disappointed if she tries to double...yeah. OK, got it.
