    Danielle pressed a bit too much, hit h4 or 5 drifted to the right and that's all she wrote. Was def. in shape for 12.3x. Nia Ali executed pretty much perfectly and was awarded with a PB and WC gold

    Agreed. She does not seem to be bringing her lead leg down as fast as she has in the past. Kind of sailing over a bit.

    But I believe the field event competitions were stopped during the sprint introductions anyway.

    Fair enough. Having to watch from the cozy confines of my computer screen, I was working off of hearsay.

    Those displays must have been stunning, in person. Anyone care to tell us about it?

    They were stunning in the stadium, especially at the beginning, when they were totally different from anything that I'd ever seen. Buy the end of the meet, the impact wasn't quite as great, but I thought it was still effective. I can't compare it to what you were watching on your computer since I haven't gone back and looked at the replays.
