    Also the lane draw meant the first time SMU probably saw Naser was on the final bend so she had to make a choice react or assume that Naser couldn't keep that up and would die in the home stretch. Naser was fading in the final 30m and SMU was catching her but there wasn't enough track left.

    It is a pretty big surprise, especially the time, but it is not a big upset in my mind because those two were both head and shoulders above the rest.

    So how many points is this worth for the top two, not they actually need the points (although SMU did not have enough competitions to have a place in the ranking).

    Gotta hand it to Naser though, she ran so fast over the first 200m and certainly didn't run out of gas in the homestretch, a special talent.

    Its insane to think that 2 women are in reach of 47 seconds! SMU is only 25, Naser is 21!

    And behind them! Jackson 49.47, Jonathas 49.60, Francis 49.61. One of the deepest races outside of 1996!
    SMU performed wonderfully, as you say she obliterated her best ever time. Naser just was riding an invisible rocket and obliterated her best time even more than SMU did. Roll on Tokyo I say.

    That was a great shot of utter disbelief indeed! What a race ... can't believe all those sub-50s!

    Disagree. You swap their lanes and it's quite possible Naser can't tee off SMU and runs a more conservative first half while SMU just gauges her race better, especially if the goal is to win the race.

    Regardless though, Naser got it right and SMU ran an enormous PB. Just an amazing race.

    Stick to both.

    Michael Johnson broke it down perfectly a few moments ago on BBC. SMU made the normal 99% right decision running an even paced 400. Just so happened that 1% struck tonight and Nasser going out hard and showcasing her overall strength won.


    He mentioned if SMU went harder the first 200 the finish would've been tight, SMU would've ran a faster time and potentially won.
