    That's plenty of footspeed.
    Plenty on paper, and the track at Doha is another material/matter.

    ???

    Slightly misleading. Gardner ran 10.74 in 2016, prior to a serious injury. I would not say she has 10.74 footspeed right now, barely sub-11 at the moment.

    11.16 into a 2.4 is 10.98 for Gardner.

    And....? In my vocabulary, 10.98 = barely sub-11, not 10.74

    The original question was about a comparison with GB. I see only one British woman sub-11. Their #4 is 11.21.

    The US obviously have better foot speed with their top 4, but they'll need some clean baton passing if they want to win the 4x100, as they aren't that far ahead of GBR to be able to fumble passes. See what happened with JAM. They only caught GBR on the line thanks to SAFP being in fantastic form.

    Hell, on paper, GER would have a chance in the 4x1 with 4 women under 11.21, but unfortunately for them, two of those aren't seasoned short relay runners.

    But this might make the 4x1 a close race this year, which would be great to watch

    Real mixed bag for the US with two athletes coming back from career threatening injuries and one who has raced 39 times this year already!

    Based on a 7.10PB in one 60m race this year and her lighter schedule, Gardner is the best chance of making a final.

    Looking at relay line ups Gardner to Bowie were the last two legs in Rio, perhaps Akinosun to Daniels would work on legs 1 and 2?

    Can't count out Dezarea Bryant for one of those curves. She is probably one of the strongest curve runners in the relay pool.

    Don't forget the relay pool can have Hobbs and Terry, too, plus Annelus from the 200.

    Good shout. Perhaps her on first leg depending on how the team does as individuals, she's a better seasons best than Akinosun but misfired in the 100m final.

    Terry has said she's not going. What's Hobbs relay leg when she was at LSU?
