    My hunch is that SMU passes DS with 20 to go and Bowie fades to 3rd after a great turn.

    I was doubtful on Stevens on another thread but have a little bit of second thoughts on that. Specifically at NCAAs she had lots on her plate in a short period of time (although the 4x100 was out). Here the situation is reversed; almost all of the top athletes are doubling and this is the second event while she and Duncan (and ?) have only the 200 (and maybe the prelim in the relay).

    Opps, Stevens is in the 100..., although she might have just one hard round and not make the Final.

    (11.1/10.6);
    3. Veronica Campbell-Brown (Jam) 21.97
    (11.2/10.8);
    4. Candyce McGrone (US) 22.01 PR (=10, x A)
    (11.0/11.0);
    5. Dina Asher-Smith (GB) 22.07 NR
    (11.2/10.9);
    6. Jeneba Tarmoh (US) 22.31

    She has always had a great finish, but a) I think SMU will be stronger and b) DS doesn't look as fast this year as she did the last two.

    Single race and it's Bowie, add all the other races in the mix and it's wide open.

    I think Bowie will win the 200M.In 21.79 in a close race with the field.

    Agreed, though I definitely favour Schippers in a championship setting with rounds. I don't think Miller-Uibo is going to have enough gas in the tank to keep up with Schippers and Bowie, but I like her for bronze.

    Miller-Uibo will be coming on hard but will not be making up much ground on Schippers. She'll pass Bowie though. Ultimately though lane assignments will play a factor. If Miller is stuck in lane 3 or 4, it will be tougher for her.

    1. Dafne 21.81
    2. Miller 21.98
    3. Bowie 22.06

    What about Ta Lou? I think she'll be dangerous and not one to sleep on!
