    Okagbare has two LJ medals; Oly silver (upgraded from bronze) from 2008, and WC silver from 2013.

    Commonwealth gold, meh...lots of countries and athletes missing. And the LJ medals, ya, I'll give her that, was more talking about the sprints. She has run some phenomenal times on the circuit but rarely delivers on the track in Olympics or Worlds.

    I would say no way was Okagbare getting a medal before I watched the 100 final. Now with Thompson not at her best due to her Achilles and Schippers carrying another injury to add to her back, there is an opportunity for Okagbare. If she fails to medal here, with no SMU, no SAFP, and an injured Thompson and Schippers then theres no helping her!

    Why was Okagbare not in the 100m? Nigerian Federation issues?

    Yeah, her 100m performance has probably bolstered her confidence, so I think DAS should take this pretty easily. Probably 21.9x with a three-tenths winning margin.

    Quick Schippers update: Coach Bennema said she felt her groin at 10m into the 100m SF and from 20-40m couldn't 'stretch' out. It was his decision to withdraw her to prevent further injury. They will decide (now) during her warm up for the 200m heats whether she continues or not.

    Schippers DNS, Ta Lou DNS

    No SMU, no SAFP, no Schippers, no Ta Lou, Thompson not in form....this event went from looking potentially good at the start of this season to this.

    Agreed. Whoever signed off on this event schedule should be fired.
