    I think we've already seen the last of Seyni in the 400m at the professional and international level.

    - No 400m since the 49.19 almost 2 months ago, except one inside Niger
    - Skipped the Diamond League 400m final
    - Ran the 100m and 200m in the African games, even though the 400m would have been an easy gold medal and Niger's only good chance of any color medal in T&F at this year's games, and the schedule allowed for a 200m/400m double with the 400m final being a day before the 200m heats
    - No indication of being in any upcoming meets on the pro circuit

    Anyone get a Semenyaesque vibe from Seyni? I wonder if they pulled her card.

    trackCanuck and 18.99s have been insinuating that in every single 400 discussion for months. It got old really quickly (which of course has no bearing on whether they're right or not).

    that's treading on unacceptable speculation.

    but in any case, 400 runners aren't subject to the Semenya rule

    Yes, they are. The rules apply to distances from 400 to 1 mile inclusive. If they didn't, Semenya would have just settled on running the 400, where she would still be a medal contender.

    How many assistant coaches does he have? That's one workload. 😋
