    So Bloomfield chose to not run the 400m, which he likely could have won, but runs the 200m and finishes 5th.

    Anyone know the reasoning behind not running the 400?

    AYE!! Don't waste committee time on the #1 selection! That would be an even bigger farce! The girl ran a NR 12.40 at the NCAA. Let the rest fight it out on the circuit; then make the selection by early-September.

    And what was the reaction time on Danielle Williams' false start? I haven't seen any video footage (yet), but I gather it was entirely reminiscent of Linford Christie (Atlanta 1996) and Jon Drummond (2003 World Champs) in the 100.

    Does anyone here think the 3 who claimed injury were sandbagging in protest for the way the officials handled the race? For some reason, I don't blame them at all, given what I just read. If I were them, I wouldn't want to risk injury, either, at the chance of the officials once again fucking up the re-run.

    Referring to them as 'organisers' is bit much. Seems as though there was little organization at all. Could you imagine USATF trying to pull that scheisse?

    I am so glad the U.S. does not select its Olympic/WC teams the way Jamaica does. Selection by committee??? So politics, favoritism, etc. does not come into play when its done that way? I know most of the rest of the world does it that way, but........SMH!!!!

    Well, I will say to the Jamaicans the same thing I say to the Americans: Get the baton around the damn track first, and the world record, if it is to be, will take care of itself.

    Probably would have lawsuits all over the place.

    They almost did, with the Jeneba Tarmoh/Allyson Felix affair in the 100 at the 2012 Olympic Trials. They were lucky they scheduled the run-off for the next day. But imagine if tonight's skirmish involved a race 400m or longer, and the officials whistled a false start while the runners were at the 150m mark...
