    I am sure the equipment/timing/officials were all superb.

    For the IAAF to ratify a world record at NCAAs, USADA would need to be present and be given access to the first passing of urine. This conflicts with the NCAA drug testing.

    The world record/U20 records set at NCAA Indoors last year were never ratified so...
    Didn't someone at the NCAAs (from LSU, I believe) fail a drug test earlier this decade, and either the points in that event were revoked or the title revoked, and the individual suspended from both NCAA and international competition?

    Likely thinking of Semoy Hackett. LSU lost points in both sprints and the sprint relay championship. 2012?

    I think she remained eligible internationally because the info is not released by either the NCAA or school due to US privacy (FERPA and/or HIPAA) laws.

    The opposite of the Steve Mulling fiasco in which he failed a test at the Jamaican Trials yet was recruited as an eligible athlete at Mississippi State because, at least at the time, the NCAA only recognized failed tests that the NCAA administered. I'm not sure this is still the case.

    Definitely the biggest surprise of the weekend for me. 10.75 celebrating before the line at the age of 19 is just insane! That's an Olympics-winning performance there.

    Completely, she took her arms out of the equation but here legs didn't let up.

    But her center of gravity went up and not down, and a lean would have knocked more time off. My guess is about 0.03 seconds, less than most estimates for Bolt for his first OG 100.

    My math shows that at her end speed (~.95sec/10m), each .01 sec = 3.74 inches of travel. So you're saying she could have gained about a foot had she kept her running mechanics and leaned (which itself, ends running mechanics).
    While that's certainly possible, I'd guess less, and it certainly was more fun to watch her way! As was Bolt's and Borzov's and Tommie Smith's, etc..

    Without wanting to quibble over what that last digit would have been, arms contribute to forward motion....and running with hands over head is not the way to optimize a 100 time.

But that still doesn't explain Trayvon Bromell's 2014 WJR. Has the testing protocol changed since 2014?
    I do not know. Either the NCAA gave USADA access to him in 2014, or the IAAF has changed something since then. I don't know which it is.
