    Was she referring to Doha or to the ultimate outcome? From what I've read, there's no way Semenya's going to compete in Doha, although it's possible that she will eventually emerge from all of the legal processes with a win. In that sense, it isn't over yet.

    Edited to fix typo.

    Like you noticed yourself, 400H WRs have historically mostly been set in a championship setting (sometimes with tougher schedules than we have today). And an athlete who's ready to break the record will be able to take it fairly easy in the rounds.

    They always say that....

    I think an iceberg is more likely to appear in Doha than Semenya running in the 800.

    One is due to arrive in the UAE some time soon, so why not Qatar?

    I would posit that in any "stadium" the WR can't be broken. Has to be a small facility with virtually no stands in the way. Gotta remember that even Schult at the time laughed about the ludicrousness of his mark.

    BUt those Qataris and their tech. Leave to them to figure out a waft some breezes in from the right quarter!

    I've maintained a stance of Bolt's records currently being "unbreakable," and that even Lyles in the 200 would probably eventually top out around 19.30, or maybe 19.25 at the fastest.

    But that said, I'd have to add him and the 200 as having "a chance" for the record in Doha...

    I also think there's an outside shot in mST, in addition to agreeing with other events already mentioned.

    I think the m & w400H are the most likely to go.

    Also agree that Mayer could pop a WR if he has a good start and gets in a groove.
