    I know the TV commentators like to overblow the word "experience" but the fact that Felix stayed in the middle of her lane in leg 2, while in a deficit. I'm sure a more inexperienced runner, at that stage, in that situation would panic and drift near the line, possibly drawing a DQ. Smart running by Felix, as always!

    Assuming Jackson and Clayton are coming in for Jamaica, that will be a formidable lineup. Not hard to see a 2015 repeat.

    Richburg may regret tying one hand behind the US back

    Very disappointing that they're not giving the hurdlers who went 52.17 and 52.23 yesterday an opportunity to run the 4x4 with the quarter-milers who went 49.6 and 49.61 in the open 400m final. Muhammad-McLaughlin-Jonathas-Francis would have been a terrific quartet.

    Felix looked good, and apparently split 49.8, but I still wouldn't have put her in the final over the aforementioned four.

    Is that official, or a guess?

    I don't think anyone in the heats is going to be in the final. I don't think anyone in the heats should be in the final. It must be Muhammad, Francis, Jonathas and McLaughlin. If they want a fast time, and insurance in case of any mishap, they need to put the 400 open/hurdles finalists in the final. McLaughlin has shown (once again) that she is not afraid to chase down anyone.

    They can only change out two in the regular 4x4

    But unless I'm not seeing it there, that rule doesn't note that the mixed relay is an exception.

    It's now possible to change the entire lineup for the final.
