    If you want to see what Pinto can do on the third leg, watch this video (ISTAF 2019/41.67s). She destroys the Chinese woman and the Chinese still ran a 42.3 in that race.

    OTOH, the US 200 runners showed they are in shape. If they form the core of the relay, they could still be competitive.

    But are they allowed to? As i understand it, the four who ran the 100 have to be in the relay team of six you can enter. That would leave only two slots for 200m women. And the second question, were the 200m women involved in the relay practices?

    Anyone on Team USA can be used for the 4x1 relay: Hurdlers, I think we have those, 200 runners, LJers, 400 runners and discus thrower.

    The 4 runners entered in the corresponding event have to be part of the makeup of the relay pool. However, anyone entered in the meet can actually run in the relay.

    So Pinto apparently felt pain 120m into the 200m SF - hence her going backwards - and may not be able to run in the 4x1. If she doesn't, forget a medal for GER

    With Thompson out I think I favour UK for gold. I predict:

    1. UK
    2. Jamaica
    3. USA
    4. Germany

    Even without Thompson, Jamaica had two other ladies who made the finals, one of them the world champion, who's a clear meter better than anyone else in Doha right now. Jamaica still has the firepower; the question is whether or not they'll have decent passes.
