    A good coach can correct that, but I'm not aware of that coach having coached anybody else to even sub-52.
    Of course they're linked, hence the 'per se', but it was also due to lack of speed and then confidence, to be able to go out fast. Shes since worked on speed and is gradually starting faster .

    It was breathtakingly absurd.

    The #1 rookie mistake is going out too fast. I'll take a come-from-behinder every time.

    Her coach, Claude Guillaume, coaches all African runners, who all competed at the African Championships.
    Why did the UK authorities deny her Visa?

    I'm not so sure there was a visa denial. It may have been a matter of the visa application not being processed fast enough before the meet.

    In Rabat, her splits were:
    12.8, 24.5 (11.7). 37.1 (12.6), 50.3 (13.2) 24.5/25.8 This may very well be optimum pacing. Note that Seyni's last 100 was her slowest of the race.
    Naser ran 12.2, 23.7 (11.5), 36.3 (12.6), 50.3 (14.0) 23.7/26.6

    In Lausanne, her splits were:
    12.6, 24.4(11.8), 36.6 (12.2), 49.2 (12.6) 24.4/24.8 Probably not optimum.
    Naser ran 12.3, 23.9, 36.1 (12.2), 49.2 (13.1) 23.9/25.3
    Seyni's last 100 was still her =slowest of the race.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Atticus; many, many 400 runners go out too fast and suffer the consequences. Too bad these "Race Analysis" file are fairly recent, especially for shorter distances, and not available (AFAIK) for most meets.

    BTW, Brazier's last 200 in the Zurich 800 was not his slowest of the race, but it was the second slowest -- 25.2, 25.6, 26.2, 25.7
    Amos 23.6, 24.8, 26.1, 28.5!!

    It looked like Brazier was completely out of it, but that was due to the insane pace Abda/Amos set, not because Brazier was starting particularly slowly.

    In Bydgoszcz, she did 26.2 - 24.9! (13.5 - 12.7 - 12.2 - 12.7)
    Było smaszno, a jaszmije smukwijne...

Her performance is such an outlier compared to the consistency of SMU and Naser have shown, I don't even see how she is in the same conversation. If she does make the Doha final, I would pick the group of Jackson/Francis/Wimbley etc. to finish ahead of her.

    Even Naser had Asian and World Youth titles/championship experience before her London breakthrough. Seyni has essentially no experience entering Doha. Even Tokyo, I question if she will still be a 49.xx runner then.
    Seyni's 400 races, 2019
    May 26 51.11
    May 30 52.54 (1st Bauhaus)
    June 9 50.97
    June 16 50.24 (2nd Rabat)
    June 22 50.51
    July 5 49.19 (2nd Lausanne)
    July 19 53.31 (1st heat), 50.90 (1) (also ran a heat (23.21) and semi (22.89) of the 200, same day)

    Her only two losses were to Naser. It's mostly steady progression, no?
    If she is allowed to compete, I think she has a good chance to make the final. Of course, she has not dealt with 3 rounds, but she ran four races on July 19, both finals much faster than the heats.
