    It seems to me that Ms. Williams is the author of her own misfortune.

    She broke. Can't blame that on anyone else.

    She then had a temper tantrum. Can't blame that on anyone else.

    “The athletes to represent Jamaica in the 100 Metres Hurdles for Women at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar will be selected based on the IAAF Ranking as of August 16, 2019."
    Well, sux for them. The top 3 could have trained and competed sparingly. Doesn't this force them to go out on the circuit and accumulate points till he bitter end?

    I'm so confused by the new qual system - can any nation rely solely on their own internal criteria any more?

    Yes. Stupidity. Would have been much better to arrange for them to race sometime in July (with paid travel expenses for those who live outside Kingston).

    With Danielle Williams ruled out there are only 4 Jamaican 100 hurdlers in the top 50 in the IAAF rankings. Janeek Brown would probably not have to do anything at this point to stay as one of the top three. The other three Yanique Thompson, Jeanine Williams and Megan Tapper are probably fighting for two spots. Thompson has three marks about to fall off the one year time limit, so she is very likely the most vulnerable.
