    Huh? Hiding where and from what?

    Muhammad and McLaughlin are in the 400H.
    Francis chose the 200.
    Campbell, Richardson and Roberts are collegians, no surprise they are giving it a pass.
    Davis barely meets the age criteria for Worlds and is at Pan Am U20s.

    Looks like some pretty stout entries in spite of the above.

    I understand why people aren't running the w400m but few who are running have done very well so far. That is why I said it was wide open and weak. If you want to argue it looks stout I'm more than willing to take on that discussion.

    Just'N Thymes is a great name. In my head the second 's' is silent.

    So they have accepted full fields in a large number of events that still have extra "not accepted" entries. So I guess if someone improves there mark between now and the 21st there will just be extra people in the field??

    'Fit enough' is one thing, race sharp is another.

    I can imagine they've probably reflected on who is in what form and decided that no one is really 'out there' this season in the US, so why not go for it. Even with a depleted field though, it would be quite an achievement to make the team, with zero competition since giving birth. I'd be flabbergasted if she does finish top 3 (is that what Ato means by 'fit enough to make the team'?) but bow to his inside knowledge. Just Felix starting in itself makes this race tasty, no disrespect to the other women.

    No Bowie in the 200m as we expected, which is sad.

    Felix doesn't need to finish Top 3 to make the team. Making final might be enough given two different relays to fill (w4x4 plus mixed 4x4)

    Yes, this is what I was getting at; if she 'just' needs to get to the final - a great achievement in itself after no racing - then this is more plausible.
